Saffron Almond Baklava - Heray Spice
Oct 04, 2023
Baklava, deeply rooted in the cultural traditions of Turkey, Greece, and the Middle East, traces its origins to the ancient Assyrian Empire in the eighth century B.C.E. Originally, it consisted of humble flatbreads adorned with chopped nuts, reserved for special occasions, and it gradually spread through ancient lands. Over time, it evolved, with the Ancient Greeks and Romans introducing their own sweet variation called 'placenta cake.' However, its transformation reached its zenith during the Ottoman Empire about 500 years ago, where it gained almost sacred status and featured prominently in Ramadan feasts. This cultural icon wasn't limited to one religious group; it held significance for Ottoman Christians and Jews alike. Today, saffron almond baklava continues this rich tradition, offering a taste of Middle Eastern heritage through its layers of phyllo pastry and saffron-infused almonds, symbolizing centuries of cultural depth and flavor.
