TOP 7 PLACES MAKING BAKLAVA IN ISTANBUL

Undoubtedly, baklava comes to mind first when you think of the Turkish dessert culture. Baklava, which continues to grow with its different varieties that are discovered every day, is a special sweet of the most special days and pleasant moments. Although it is found in the kitchen of many nations, the research reveals that baklava belongs to Central Asian Turkish states. The baklava, which emerged in the late 17th century, has adapted to various palates and has reached present day with various additions. Baklava, which has an important place especially in Ottoman cuisine, was prepared and presented in trays to the Janissaries every 15th of the month of Ramadan in a ceremonial procession.
