At Stamford's Greek Festival, Soula Rizos says everything is home made.
"Everything we do is from scratch. We try to make it the way we make it at home," said Soula Rizos.
Rizos has been cooking family recipes for over 40 years at the Archangels Greek Orthodox Church Greek Fest.
This weekend is serving up a taste of tradition.
"It's tradition. The stuffed tomatoes," said Rizos. "We're going to have to stuff 300. Quite a few."
"Soula is a pro. I think I'm a seasoned cook, but I'm learning a lot from her today," said Annie Konidaris, who was helping in the church kitchen Friday morning. There, a group of volunteers got together to make stuffed tomatoes for the festival.
"We take pride in our culture," said Rizos.
"I think it's very important for people coming in to visit and eat, but it's not only the food aspect. Just knowing all about Greek Orthodox traditions too," said Konidaris.
"We are reminded of our traditions and our foods, which we love. And also that we expose Americans of different nationalities to our foods and our customs," said Rizos. "I have to say, they seem to be enjoying it."
The festival will run through Sunday Sept. 29 at 1527 Bedford St.
There will also be live music, dancing, shopping and rides.
