25 March Panigiri Pretoria 2016

On Sunday the 20th of March, the Pretoria Hellenic community all united to celebrate the 25th of March Panigiri. 
PHYC was there in full force baking and selling the very famous loukoumades! This is always a great task to take on as it involves everyone coming in early and preparing the dough to rolling the dough and frying it and dipping them in syrup! 
Luckily we had a strong and experienced group of ladies who were willing to help us throughout the entire day. If it wasn’t for them we literally would have been able to seek loukoumades. But myself and other PHYC ladies soon got the hang of making loukoumades and definitely learnt a lot in the kitchen that day! 
It was a fun experience and it’s always so heart-warming to see all us Hellenes join in and celebrate such special occasions in our culture. From pimata to dancing and playing on the jumping castles, everyone had the most wonderful time! And boy oh boy did I enjoy eating my loukoumades!
