Overview

Join us as we make the Middle Eastern version of Baklava, known as Baklawa in Arabic!

There are various versions of Baklava throughout the Mediterranean, Europe, and Mid East. All Baklavas are made similarly, but Arab Baklawa is soaked in a floral honey-rose water syrup called Attar. Pistachios are the most popular way to make Baklawa, but here at Mid East Eats, we prefer a mixture of walnuts and pistachios. For this class, you decide yourself if you would like to use pistachios, walnuts, or a mix of both!
