St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church will hold a food festival featuring a “small taste of Serbia” on Oct. 2 and 3, a spokeswoman said.
All foods will be available for takeout only both days from 3 to 7 p.m. Selections will be similar to those usually sold by St. Sava’s during McKeesport International Village.
Selections will include a lamb sandwich on a hard roll; sarma (Serbian-style stuffed cabbage); grah i kupas (traditional soup made of sauerkraut and red kidney beans); halushki (sauteed sliced cabbage and onions mixed with egg noodles); and Spanish rice (white rice slow simmered with tomatoes, onions, peppers and spices.
On Oct. 2, the church also will offer a 12-ounce hand-breaded fish sandwich. Other specials that day will include shrimp and french fries.
On Oct. 3, the church will offer a hot sausage sandwich with onions and green peppers in a tomato sauce.
Desserts will include apple strudel, palacinke (thin crepes filled with a mixture of cheeses and baked) and gibanica (cheese strudel with layers of filo dough and a mixture of cheeses), as well as frozen nut and apricot rolls.
Orders will be placed at the social hall and no phone orders will be accepted, the spokeswoman said. Social-distancing rules will be in place and no one will be admitted without a face mask, she said.
