Syrian Sweets

Syrische Süßigkeiten


The cuisine of the Levant or Syria-Palestine is Middle Eastern fare with Arab, Asian, African and Mediterranean influences (Wikipedia: Levant). The shopping site is a good primer on Levantine sweets, likewise the Wikipedia entries on baklava and ma’amoul, as well as Taste of Beirut’s entry on malban.

Mama’s Lebanese Kitchen has great recipes for baklava and ma’amoul. Incidentally, baklava is also related to the German strudel.

Meanwhile, in Malaysia, an obscene variety of Malaysian North and South Indian sweets is available during Deepavali.
