Spanakopitta is one of the top five most famous Greek dishes worldwide, among the Greek salad, mousakka, souvlaki and tzatziki. Spanakopita seems complex, but really is derived from two simple words, that’s spinach and pitta, which means pie so in English Spanakopita translates into a simple spinach pie. But since Greeks do everything with so much passion, how can a spinach pie be as simple as it sounds! This photo was taken for my blog’s www.cinnamonspiceblog.com post of how to create this stunning dish. The photograph was shot in natural light in front of a south facing window and I have chosen a close up look in order to show the ingredients in the pie and how tasty she is.
