Baklava is a delicious rich dessert that is very popular around the Mediterranean, every family and culture has their own traditional way of making it, my Grandmother from generations to generation in her family cut theirs in a star shape for the diamonds. For the syrup, I like mine simple without extra flavours or add ins, no cinnamon or rose water stuff like that just ruins it for me.
My Grandfather was the master of baklava, everyone came to our house for Bajram not just to visit, but to get some baklava! Wish he could be here to taste mine, as I never got the chance to make it for him…every time I make it I think of him. My Grandmother says mine tastes just like hers, which makes me feel so good<3
