Baklava The Greek Treat Just For You

As varied as the different ways it is prepared, the origin of Baklava is hard to trace. Aside from the fact that it is not very well-documented, a number of countries claimed it as their own. However, it is believed by many that the Assyrians first introduced it to the society by layering nuts with a simple unleavened flat bread, drenched with honey. At that time, it is said to be a special dessert prepared only on special occasions for individuals occupying a high position in the society like the monarchs and kings. However, as merchants travel from place to place, the recipe found its way to Turkey and Athens. It is believed that the Turks discovered the Phyllo dough which is the commonly used dough today but it is the Greeks which made possible the paper-thin version such dough. Right now, Baklava is generally served as a dessert on special occasions especially during religious ceremonies. Yet, it is also made available in restaurants as a special treat made only just for you.
