I attended a local annual Greek Festival this Labor Day weekend in Orange, CT called "Odyssey" at the ST Barbara Greek Orthodox Church. Throughout the day, several cooking classes were held, free of charge, taught by a very nice lady from Greece named Virginia. The next class was about to start, so I decided to watch, even though it was for a recipe I already thought I knew how to make - spanakopita. Well - Virginia's version blew mine away and now this is the version I will only use from now on. This has a lot more fresh herbs and two types of onions, and lots of eggs, more than any recipe for spanakopita I had ever used. Virginia said that you cut the finished recipe into 24 servings, so really, 8 eggs isn't too many. She also said that you may use fresh spinach, finely chopped to equal the same amount as the frozen, but that it is not necessary since the frozen comes pre-chopped and will be getting cooked anyway. She also said that she makes her own pastry for this, but that it is perfectly fine to use a good quality brand of boxed phyllo pastry (which is what she used in the class). She specifically mentioned not adding any salt, as the feta is already salty enough. Also, she used Parmesan because that is what is available in the US - in Greece she would use a similar Greek cheese, such as mizithra.
