Who invented fillo pastry?

It was the Turks!!

But it was the persians who added nuts and honey and turned it to baklava!

Who made it famous? THE GREEKS!! Just like everything else!!

Greeks invented filo pastry from my cook books, filo means a leaf in Greek and this is why it's called filo because it's as thin as a leaf.

Its hard to find out who invented Baklava ,when both people live toghether.could be George ,could be Ahmet, nobody knows the originality of baklava, and what defference makes anyway,we dont know who came first the egg or the chicken we worry about baklava lol.any way the greco-turkish kitchen is the same .

Philo is a friend, filo is a leaf or a page in a book, both sound the same, it's in the context of how it's used.

What a stupid thing to fight over. The great irony is that with all the animosity between Greeks and Turks the rest of us can't tell them apart.
