Years ago food network, travel channel etc would highlight ethnic restaurants and shops in the Tarpon Springs area and south.
Particularly around christmas time. There were eastern block or greek restaurants that made
holiday treats. One looked like profiteroles made into a christmas tree.
They were famous for it and shipped them all over the world.
There were others like that in that area. Ethnic communities where greek and other delicacies could be found.
I have not been able to find any of it on the web.
