Vegan spanakopita triangles

vegan spanakopita triangles plate

I bet that when you think of Greek food, spanakopita is one the first dishes that springs to mind. Greeks make all sorts of delicious pies, but spanakopita is world famous for a reason – it has flaky and crispy golden pastry with a spinach and feta cheese filling seasoned with nutmeg and herbs. When made with love and care, it is the stuff of dreams. On Paros, there is one pie shop in particular, run by a charming Giorgios that has become something of a local institution. Its appearance may be unassuming but the pies are out of this world – made with homemade pastry with well balanced filling and always fresh (often made on request while you wait and chat to the owner – that’s the Greek way! 🙂 ). We take all our guests there to make sure they have a quality Greek pie experience before they leave the island.
