Origin of Baklava

When "Turkey and dessert" is mentioned, "baklava" comes to mind. Since it is known that this extremely delicious and nutritious dessert has been made in Anatolia for many years, it is also recorded that the Assyrians made a type of dessert that we can call baklava, but this dessert was made by sprinkling nuts between two phyllo and baking it in the oven. The type of baklava we know today was first encountered in Sam, and then baklava was brought to Antep from Sam. In Antep, the baklava dough is rolled much thinner and the quality pistachios grown in the region add flavor to its taste. Over the years, Baklava has become synonymous with Antep and has taken its current form. The world's best baklava masters were trained in the Antep region.

Baklava Culture

Baklava is the most preferred type of dessert in holidays, weddings and special celebrations in the Ottoman Empire. Baklava, which is a symbol of wealth, appears not only in celebrations, but also in various state ceremonies. Baklava making was even taken so seriously that the Baklava Regiment was founded at the end of the 17th century. During the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent, before the war, soldiers were served rice and stew with zerde.

However, after a while, this tradition turned into the distribution of baklava in Ramadan due to the lack of expeditions. On the 15th day of each Ramadan, trays of baklava were served to the janissaries and this ceremony was called the Baklava Procession. This tradition, which emerged at the beginning of the 18th century, was made by the sultan to please his soldiers. It was prepared as a tray for every ten soldiers and served in front of the palace kitchen. After Silahtar Agha, who was at the head of the Janissaries, took the first place, all bad luck was given to the Janissaries. They would go to their barracks with the soldiers carrying their superiors in the front and the sinister ones in the back.
