2017June11FoodFest Like last year, our Canadian table ‘sold out’ at the annual, ethnic Food-for-Good Festival on June 11 at Plaz Aretsou, Kalamaria, Thessaloniki. Once again, we Canadians served exactly 163 mouth-watering servings of meatballs and salads. Besides pork and beef meatballs, we featured turkey (I heard someone praising them a few meters away from our stand) as well as maple syrup meatballs. As for salads, these included quinoa, beetroot, string bean, green, pasta, and wild rice.
