The fact that I love sweets, I believe is no longer a secret to anybody. If this is something new for you, will confirm again : I LOVE sweets. They change my mood, make me smile, bring peace to my mind. Yes, I have a special relationship with my desserts.
Every place I visit, I seek for their special desserts. Now, I haven’t found anything interesting in Georgia, while I must say that Turkey has blown my tastes with their impressive variety of sweets. It is a fascinating country if you are a desert lover, and you will not get disappointing with none of your choices.
There are baklavas, puddings, cakes, ice cream, fruits, gem and honey, all to your delight. I admit I have taken advantage of them all, and I am looking forward to …leave from here as my pants are now seriously crying.
As for my favorites in Turkey …would probably be :
2. Laz Boregi
4. Tavuk gogusu: chicken pudding (apparently it is really cooked with chicken)
5. Dondurma (Turkish ice cream)
And some pictures … enjoy! (they will keep me warm in times when all of this will be a nice sweet memory).
Laz Boregi is one of my favorites, it is a sort of baklava, but it has a milky/creamy filling that makes it absolutely super tasty :). This desert can be found only in the Kackar mountains (the small village of Ayder or area around).
Kunefe is made out of small sweet noodles that have a layer of cheese inside. I liked it and can be found also in different variations and forms, depending which part of the country you will be having it.
Tavuk gogusu (chicken pudding), I loved it and had no problem that a dessert can be made out of chicken breast. It is today considered a signature dish of Turkey.
If you want to share with me the desserts you have tried and loved in Turkey or any other place, I am happy to find, try and enjoy your choices. Let me know ;)
