The February Daring Cooks’ Challenge was hosted by Audax of Audax Artifex. The challenge brought us to Greece with a delicious, flaky spanakopita – a spinach pie in a phyllo pastry shell.
I didn’t to the daring kitchen challenges for to long and I suppose it was time for me to get started again, because it’s a lot of of fun to do and I learn new recipes and flavors. All members share their special recipes from their country of childhood and they are most of the time quite a suprise and very tasteful.
This month we baked spanakopita, a Greek dish I’ve never eaten before. It was not to difficult to make and the flavors were very rich. This is indeed a dish I’m going to make more often. And I will share the recipe with you, that Audax written for us. Thanx Audax!
Tips and tricks
- Audax used frozen spinach and I used fresh. I didn’t got much liquid (almost none), so I add only a small tablespoon of breadcrumbs to the filling;
- I didn’t use the garlic clove and didn’t miss it either.
