The Fasolatha (bean soup) Festival, originated in Florina, Macedonia, Greece, and is now a major cultural event in many Greek communities across the world. In the Northern hemisphere, the religious festival is traditionally observed near the start of winter - on St. Nicholas Day (during his lifetime he was known for giving sustenance to the poor). Food is a major part of the festival. Apart from Fasolatha (bean soup), Olives, Renga (smoked herring) freshly baked Florinian Bread (Pogatsa) Gyros, Souvlaki, Kebabs, and Loukoumathes (honey cinnamon - soaked donuts) are also served. Fasolatha is one of the heartiest dishes on the Greek vegetarian table, and a Lenten mainstay.
