It’s National Baklava Day!

National Baklava DayIn case you didn’t know, November 17 is National Baklava Day. You may have tried baklava before, but do you know where it comes from and what makes it so tasty?

A popular Mediterranean dessert with muddled origins, baklava was a special, luxurious dessert, usually only enjoyed by the rich. The basic ingredients consist of nuts, phyllo dough or flat bread, and syrup or honey. Different Middle Eastern countries may claim its origin, with distinct variations of these ingredients. To prepare baklava, the phyllo dough and chopped nuts are typically layered, then baked. Immediately after baking, they are covered with the syrup or honey. Once the syrup or honey has had time to soak into the baklava, it is ready to be served.
