    Caroline – I will definitely try this recipe soon, I know the Boyfriend here in Dublin will love it. I wonder if the food co-op you describe in Cork was connected to the food co-op in Temple Bar that I frequented as a student in 95/96. It closed some years ago. I think it was on Eustace St, right near IFC …was it there when you moved to Dublin? – Carina

    Seeing as I moved to Dublin in late 1997/early 1998 I think I may have missed out on the Temple Bar food co-op, Carina. I did love Cork’s Quay Co-Op while a student, spending long hours in the restaurant at night, or drinking coffee there during the day, or browsing through the strange – to me at the time – foodstuffs that they had on sale. I do think your own Boyfriend will enjoy the Spanakopita. If you don’t have a chance to make it before I get back to Ireland, I’ll have you over for a Spanakopita dinner!

    Well, food photos are definitely not my strong point but, even in a bad picture, this does manage to look good! And it tastes even better…
