I love baklava. I mean, I ADORE baklava. But only good baklava. There's plenty of crappy baklava out there you know. I fell in love with baklava when backpacking through Europe some 16 years ago. Since then it's been pretty hit and miss as I'm very dubious about tasting it.
It might not be as good.
It might be terrible.
In fact it might turn me off baklava forever.
I have, luckily found some magnificent baklava in a little kebab shop not far away from here, so I can buy it pretty much whenever I get a hankering. It's honey is not too strong and not too sticky, but it is delicate and flavoursome. The pastry is always a little bit crispy and the nuts are crunchy and never taste stale. I'm salivating typing this!
I've got many baklava recipes. I just don't trust myself. I don't want to mess with the magic of brilliant baklava. Irrational right? Is there anything you would never dream of making?
