You’ve probably learned about the Ottoman and Byzantine Empires in history class, but this CNN article will make you wish Turkey was taught through a cooking lesson.
Here’s something I would definitely like to try: Baklava
“Made from flaky phyllo pastry layered with pistachios and drenched in honey, millions of tourists and locals alike are addicted to the intermingling of the flaky pastry with the density of the nuts. While baklava is widely available throughout Istanbul, a baklava emporium that opened in 1949 today routinely wins awards for having the best rendering of the treat.” – CNN
Make sure at least once in your lifetime you visit Turkey and enjoy all of these foods.
