Freshly made Turkish Delight is delicately chewy, perfectly sweetened, and scented with the exotic flavors.
Turkish Delight has an illustrious past. It is one of the most ancient sweet dishes in the world, dating back 230 years. There are several stories surrounding its origin.
One legend has that there was a certain person who believed that the way to a woman`s heart was through her stomach. He had in his armor, recipes for some very exotic and innovative dishes.
The Turkish Delight came into being as a royal delicacy, which very soon became one of the most coveted dishes to have ever come out of the royal kitchens.
Turkish Delight is made from a sugar syrup and starch milk mixture that is cooked for five to six hours, at which point the flavor is added. The mixture is then poured into large wooden trays to be set and about five hours later they are rolled, cut and dusted with icing.
