    An absolute hit. Great hot or cold - my family actually preferred it hot (without the need for feta) Very simple to make. So easy and quick to prepare. Ps. Don't be tempted to over-do the crème fraiche. I added a little too much one day and spoiled the lot. Thanks Bibus for a brill recipe!  -  06 Oct 2015
