The History of Baklava
Many groups claim Baklava as their own. However, a check of the history of baklava yields surprising results. It is widely believed that it is of Assyrian origin.
Around approximately the 8th century B.C., Assyrians baked thin layers of dough with nuts, poured honey over it, and enjoyed this sumptuous treat.
Baklava was baked only on special occasions, usually by the rich who could afford such a luxury. A poor man used to exclaim, “I am not rich enough to eat Baklava in my house.” Well, well, well….Things have changed over the years. Now, you can order baklava anytime and you do not have to be a millionaire to enjoy the great taste. Take for example…Hadhramout… where they do stuff in reverse… for example, read their menu backwards.. i.e. from back to front.. 😉
