Although for most of us, the term Baklava is not new. But for those of us who are not familiar with the term Baklava, it is a rich sweet pastry made of multiple layers of phyllo dough. It is flaky in nature and is filled with nuts and is sweetened with sugar syrup or honey.
Owing to its ingredients, affordability of making Baklava was not within everyone’s reach historically. It was originally a dessert meant only for the wealthiest people in the country. With the vast development in means of transportation over past two centuries, trading became easier and more affordable. Dry fruits and other ingredients involved in making of Baklava became available to general public at relatively cheaper prices. As a result, Baklava became a general public item and bakers around Turkey, Greece and Middle East took the initiative of making and selling Baklava to general public.
Although there is very little to no documented history of its origin, but the prevailing theory is that the Assyrians placed finely chopped nuts between several layers of very thin bread dough, then drizzled honey over the concoction and baked it in primitive stoves around 8th century B.C. There are many countries who claim that baklava first originated within their boundaries. While not every country’s claim could be held correct, there is one thing everyone claiming the prestigious heritage would agree upon; Baklava was not meant for general public. Rather it was something that only the wealthy and royals could enjoy. The cost and availability of raw materials for this pastry remained above the affordability of common people until recent history.
Many researchers agree to the point that baklava took its modern form and shape in the kitchens of Turkish Palace during Ottoman Empire reign. With the expansion of Ottoman Empire, the pastry was introduced in different parts of the world. Middle East got so extensively involved in developing the pastry that to the minds of modern people, baklava has become synonymous with Middle Eastern Sweets now.
