Vermont Philoptochos Chapter Hosted Successful Bake Sale

November 23, 2022

BURLINGTON, VT – The Greek Ladies Philoptochos Society of the Dormition of the Mother of God Greek Orthodox Church in Burlington, VT, held another successful pre-order, take-out bake sale on November 12.

As noted on their website, the Philoptochos chapter in Vermont “is devoted to taking care of the poor and disadvantaged with funds from our pastry sales.”

Angelike Contis shared some photos of the women preparing the boxes of baked goods a day in advance. “They’ve really pivoted nicely with these types of events, during the pandemic,” she told The National Herald via email.

When asked what was the best-selling baked good of the sale, Contis told TNH: “Everything was pretty much sold out, but people love the classic baklava and spanakopita made with the special Papa Nick’s recipe (Papa Nick’s is a Greek-owned restaurant in Hinesburg, Vermont). We also have a small-batch baklava marmalade.”

Contis added that “the spanakopita is from Papa Nick’s recipe” and the “baklava is made with the Philoptochos’ recipe.”

The Dormition of the Mother of God Greek Orthodox Church is located at 600 South Willard Street in Burlington.
