Gail Psilos is co-chair of the 40th Annual Greek Festival New Orleans. Although some people may not associate Greeks with New Orleans, the Greeks, who have been skilled sailors since ancient times, have been visiting New Orleans for centuries. Appropriately, the lively three-day Greek Festival is located on a body of water: Bayou St. John. For today's podcast, Psilos gives us a glimpse of what culinary treats await visitors to the Greek Festival, from baklava to roasted lamb. And what would a Greek Festival be without dancing? According to Psilos, "When the dancers are finished on the stage, they go outside and teach people how to dance Greek." The festival is a family affair; Psilos describes a few of the many activities for the kids, including face painting and canoeing. The Greek Festival runs from Friday, May 24, through Sunday, May 26, 2013. Listen to the podcast to learn more.
