And so, this festive season Walnut Bakery is bringing the Turkish finesse to you with their rich sweets, baked to perfection.
Unbox the Turkish Delight
There are 18 options on the Turkish Delights menu, that has been thoughtfully created, trying to keep it as close to the authentic Turkish desserts as possible. So much so that even the phyllo pastry sheets used in these desserts are imported from Turkey! You can opt for a box of assorted Turkish sweets, or pick up a box of your favourite delicacies. Some of the best-selling items (and our favourite too) are:
Briouate: Briouates are perfect for chocolate lovers. Chocolate, hazelnut and crispy baklava come together to form this masterpiece.
Pistachio Knafeh: One of the most popular Turkish sweets, this is made with mixed dry fruits and honey filling sandwiched between crispy kataifi, which is a noodle shaped baklava sheet.
Greek Baklava Cookies: Looks like a cookie, but tastes divine like a sweet! Traditional Greek Baklava is a traditional dessert made of layers of crispy golden brown flakes, and bathed in honey & lemon syrup.
Chocolate Walnut Baklava: Dark chocolate and walnuts with baked flaky baklava. What’s not to love here?
Mafroukeh: A mouth-watering dessert, these are pistachio balls with a milky cream-like centre! We’d call them laddoos, but they are so much fancier than that!
Turkish Walnut & Almond Tarts: A flavourful tart base, topped with dollops of walnuts or almonds along with caramel. Kids love it!
Pistachio Roll Baklava: Move over Kaju rolls, we have something more exotic!
The Baklava Cheesecake: Makes for a great gift, is also much sought-after at parties, and tastes superb!
