My Greek Table With Diane Kochilas

Life Of Pie

Season 1, Episode 10 of 13

Is there a Greek dish more iconic than Spanakopita, spinach pie? Diane follows the fillo flake trail from a New York City diner to the remote Greek countryside to explore the origins of fillo pies. She proves that making homemade fillo is a lot easier than it seems and demonstrates how to transform the flaky pastry into a classic spinach pie. We see how a traditional cheese pie is made and visit one of the oldest artisan fillo makers in Greece. Store-bought fillo is the perfect shortcut for Diane's deliciously easy chicken pie. The life of pies ends on a sweet note with a heap of torn up fillo tossed with orange custard combines to make one of Diane's most intoxicating desserts: messy orange pie. Find out how to use fillo as a base for an array of dishes, both savory and sweet. Classic spanakopita, spinach pie; Homemade fillo; Flaky chicken fillo pie; Messy orange pie; Northern Greek feta cheese and egg pie.
