Personal Notes:
I had never tasted Greek food, nor did I know anything about it until 1977. We belonged to a "Gourmet Society" with other people from St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Sherman, TX. One couple had a Polish theme at their dinner. Another had French food. When it was our turn we decided on Greek food. The recipes came from cookbooks in the Denison library. We made a boneless leg of lamb "en croute." We bought a strange bottle with Greek writing on it. We were then introduced to the licorice flavored Greek liquor called Ouzo...

Our next foray into Greek cuisine came when we waited in a two block line to get into the Greek Orthodox Church festival in Houston. Samples of savory and sweet delicacies awaited. We bought a parish cookbook and have since enjoyed many Greek dishes, including the delicious cheese triangles called Tiropita.
