Spanakopita has got to be one of the most well known Greek dishes on the planet. Every Greek restaurant makes their own version of this (or sometimes warms up a pre packaged frozen kind....frown). It's light and flaky phyllo crust is delicious and compliments the creamy filling perfectly.
You simply cannot go wrong with this dessert. It's so easy to make. You really can't mess this recipe up even if you try!!! Kataifi is almost identical in flavor to baklava. It only differs in texture.
This dish is traditionally served as a starter or appetizer. You can absolutely serve it like that, but I think that because it is so hearty with the rich tomato and feta sauce, it can easily be the star of your meal, a.k.a the main course.
Savory pies are a very common part of classic Greek cuisine. We love our spinach pie, cheese pie, leek pie and the same goes for zucchini pie. Very similar to quiche, but surprisingly light and refreshing.
Tiropitakia, are classic Greek, little cheese pies. I make mine with a combination of three cheeses: ricotta, feta and parmesan. Super simple to prepare. When you make these, make sure to double or triple the recipe. They freeze beautifully and are perfect to have on hand in those emergency situations....
