Well its official, George is a really nice Master Chef! I had the privilege of feeding him breakfast last Friday and although I have put this recipe up here before (in the deep dark recessed archives somewhere!), I persuaded myself that it was almost a Croissant Baklava, thus meeting the Greek requirement, though GC must be completely over being fed 'Greek' foods I suspect!
