Vote for your favorite 'fasolada' at Greek spring festival

Most of us don't know beans about fasolada, but that's about to change.

Recipes vary, but fasolada is a fragrant soup of white beans, veggies and olive oil, known in certain quarters as the national dish of Greece.

A fasolada cookoff will be part of the spring festival at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, noon to 6 p.m. Saturday. The $6 ticket price includes a "tasting kit" and ballots for tasters to vote for their favorite fasolada from 1 to 4 p.m. Think "people's choice."

The fest also will feature other traditional Greek foods and beverages, backgammon tournament, raffles, a silent auction and more. Information: (916) 682-9243.
