The Quick 5 on Baklava

I just love-ah your Baklava.

Here’s what you need to know about Baklava before you can call for it at a restaurant. Say it with me, “bark- lava”; got a ring to it, don’ it?

1. It’s Multi-layered

Baklava is like an Ogre- many layers to it, if you’re getting my Shrek Reference.

2. Turkey says, “Hi”

Baklava is from Turkey. Now if there’s some of you going “No, it’s not. It’s from Bulgaria, Mongolia or Hungary.” You can debate that, while we pour ourselves some tea and have a bite of Baklava.

3.  Nutti-ness overload

Pistachios, walnuts, almonds- are doing a Turkish Dance in there.
