by Hazer Baba
$ 13.95

This premium, high quality Turkish Delight is beautifully packaged in wooden box with a picture of Maiden's Tower in the middle of Bosphorus strait that dissects the city of Istanbul into two, but also separates Europe and Asia.  This delicacy was invented in the Ottoman Empire (modern day Turkish Republic) in the 18th century.  It is a signature Turkish desert made of starch, sugar and nuts, including pistachios, dates and hazelnuts.  When introduced to Western Europe in the 19th century, it was frequently used in contemporary high-class society as a standard gift.  

Legend has it that the first Turkish delight recipe was created when a sultan ordered his confectioner to create a unique sweet, perhaps to seduce one of his reluctant wives.
