Reasons Why You Should Never Stop Eating Turkish Sweets

Submitted by • January 5, 2022 Website:

Chefs, foodies, and all-over dessert lovers, we are a team of people who had a sweet tooth and decided to take action to bring a different kind of dessert to Sydney. Desserts have always been close to our hearts. Yet, after consuming the usual run-off-the-mill cakes and fondant pastry, we realized Sydney needed something new and different, yet completely delicious. The Baklava fit the criteria. As a dessert that originated in the Middle East but has become a Greek and Turkish delight, people love the Baklava.

In the hopes of redefining local sweets culture, Baklava Direct stems from our business, “The Sweets Palace”, which has been in the industry for 17 years. Our experience, skills in creating delicacies, and desire to elevate the dessert industry are what drive Baklava Direct to be what it is today – a consumer-oriented business.

There are more than 4000 traceable ingredients and we finished 200+ interviews to bring you the most amazing earth food in the Middle East: Honey, Dates, Carob-Plum Dates and others. Topping the charts are dates and honey. The top are: Moroccan milk cream (skhug), Aleppo date, Egyptian Mellona Al Samasya, Arabic Honey from Azazieh farms in Jordan, Lebanese Kishk Castle Olive Oil. Honey is a national treasure of Syria and known for its medicinal properties that have been used as an ointment against burn injuries or to treat wounds.

However, it is a food that was used for thousands of years in the Middle East and its natural sweetness has made it one of the most loved sweeteners in the region. Honey is not only delicious, but also nutritious. It is rich in vitamins B1, B2, C and E as well as minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium. Dates are a staple in everyday life as they are used sweet or raw. They have become an indispensable part of festive dishes and people also pack them with their food when travelling outside the country. Dates are traditionally grown in Morocco and are used to prepare traditional Moroccan milk-based drink 'skhug' or in desserts such as melon topped with minced meat, cinnamon, sugar and ginger called 'al Faladia'. Dates are also imported from countries like Yemen.
