Several years ago, I went to the Saints Helen and Constantine Greek Orthodox Church's Greek festival (in Richmond, Virginia). The ladies of the church got together and make a cookbook with all their handed down, traditional Greek family recipes. This is by far THE BEST spanakopita I've ever eaten!

Most excellent! I sent some with hubby for lunch and he called me at home to give me(and the recipe!) a gold star. Sadly,there was none left for him when he returned home. My daughter and I mowed through it in ONE day!
