: : My sixth-grade daughter is doing report on Greece and we would like to know origin of wonderful pastry known as baklava. Any help?
: Ottoman Empirer Mehmet II ordered the Baklava in 1460s.
WE WERE FORCED TO MAKE ONLY TURKISH FOODS WHILE BEING UNDER THEIR RULE FOR 400 YEARS!!!!!!! BAKLAVA IS NOT GREEK> IT IS TURKISH.
Hope it helps?
I have many wonderful recipes for Greek delights to make for dessert if you want them. Just email. Yassas!
