      Ah, what a shame to see that this greco-turkish conflict is still to be found in recipes...Yet I cannot do anything but support the fact that baklava is from the middle east and that it was imported to greece during the Ottoman occuppation. Anyway, great foods to be found in both countries.

      Baklava is definitely not Greek, but Turkish. It was the prime dessert in the Ottoman Cuisine and a feast never ended without a serving. In fact the word itself is Turkish, meaning "diamond-shaped" which was the way in which the pastry was cut before serving. Generally walnuts, pistachios and other nuts are used for the filling.

      Loved it! It's exactly the baklava I remember (from both Greece and Turkey -- sorry guys ;-) and still one of the best pastries in the world.
