Having been brought up on Middle Eastern food, Baklava is one of my favourite sweet treats. Despite having tried many varieties at different places, like with most foods, the one my Grandmother makes is by far the best so I asked her to teach me. Baklava doesn’t have that many ingredients but requires making the perfect sugar syrup and rolling which took me a few times to get right. The best part was the pouring of the cool syrup on the hot pastry. These are crispy and buttery yet sticky with syrup. I’m so grateful she took the time to teach me and I love that I will always be able to make these.
