Baklava – something sweet for everyone

Baklava is one of the most popular Turkish desserts, which guarantees unforgettable taste experiences. Whoever has once tried this dainty, will for sure try it again!

Short historical background

In Polish there are two forms of the word: baklawa and bakława. This dish has its origins in the sultan tradition. First, it was served in the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. It was an inseparable element of the fifteenth day of Ramadan, which was called, in its honour, “Baklava Alayı”. The popularity of baklava had quickly spread across the Balkan countries and today it is a basic part of the sweet cuisine of those countries.

What lies beneath a mysterious name?

Baklava consists of the layers of a special dough called filo or, informally, Danish pastry. The layers are filled with a mass consisting of chopped walnuts, almonds, and pistachios mixed with honey and a special syrup – şöbiyet. The green topping consists of pistachios placed on a syrup or icing coating. All those ingredients make a sweet dessert with a crunchy consistency, to which it’s impossible to resist.
