Today, we're delving into a honey-soaked dessert that spans cultures and continents: baklava. A flaky, layered pastry of nuts, honey, and butter, I'm sorry I can't type anymore I'm actively drooling.

    • Here's an amazing idea for you: this recipe which I'm not going to provide is invented by me but I'll give you the basic idea of the dish and see what you can come up with. You make a raspberry Turkish delight and it goes inside of baklava coated in very light powdered sugar it is amazing it's like a raspberry filled donut but not as thicken gooey it's much more fluffy

  • The great thing about cooking... especially when cooking famous, well-loved recipes... is that there is not right or wrong way. Baklava has as many forms as it does varying ingredients, and no matter how you make it, you add your own spin, care, and love to the proceedings. In the end, what results is delight for all, and that's why cooking is such a wonderful endeavor. Having said all that, this baklava recipe is totally, utterly wrong.

  • This isn't baklava at all but as Prince would have said; "Whatever peanut butters your jelly." You should come to Turkey some time.Turkish cuisine isn't about kebaps and baklava, there is a huge variety of food and it's truely one of the best cuisines in the world.

  • When you do baklava şerbet(syrup) all you need is water, sugar and few drops of lemon juice. Adding honey and cinnamon is so wrong. And never use cinnamon when you make baklava. Love, from Turkey.
