Baklava is definitely my new favourite thing. Sara and I can’t get enough of the stuff at the moment, which abounds in all flavours and colours, so long as it’s walnut or toasted coconut brown, or pistachio green. Mmm pistachios. Honey. And how better to serve baklava than alongside pistachio ice-cream!?
We bought this mixed box at a specialist baklava shop in downtown central Istanbul, it’s good to go in there and look indecisive about what you want to put into it, since the cooks urge you to sample all the flavours first for free :-) Super cheap too, maybe €4 for this more than ample selection (which we promptly scoffed back at the hotel - notice the bites taken before we came to our senses and remembered to take a photo)
Despite all of this decadent dessert consumption, we both seem to be losing the bellies we acquired in western europe. (I’m looking especially at you Portugal) Seems to be down to lots of fresh vegetables and finally some sensible serving sizes.blog comments powered by Disqus
