St Christopher Hellenic Orthodox Church will host a “Greek Appetizers/Baklava Tasting” at the church, 313 Dividend Drive, Suite 210, Peachtree City, on Oct. 8, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Members of the philanthropic group, the Philoptochos Society (Friends of the Poor), will offer each guest a sample of two Greek appetizers — Spanakopites (cheese and spinach puff pastry) and Tiropites (cheese puff pastry). For dessert, each guest is invited to sample a piece of Baklava (traditional Greek pastry consisting of filo dough, nut and honey). Coffee and tea also will be provided.

All of the Greek appetizers and Baklava are hand-made by parish members.

Order forms will be available for ordering appetizers to serve at holiday gatherings. Pick-up for orders will be on Friday, Nov. 20, from 3 to 6 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 21, from 9 a.m. until noon.

After Oct. 8, contact Helen Psihountas, 770-486-6580 to place orders and arrange pick-up as supplies last. Order information can also be found at:

As there is a limited supply, it is advisable to order early.

As an added bonus, the parish is offering at no charge to the first 150 people who make reservations a complimentary spaghetti dinner with garlic bread. For reservations, call Marinda Tsahakis, 770-381-1842).
