The Quick 5 on 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.
4. The Many Faces of Baklava
Baklava has many variations to it. The modernized Chocolate or Date Baklava are a few examples.
5. Turkish Sugar Bath
Baklava is drenched in sugary syrup that is for the brave- you might just get a little dizzy.
