Gaziantep, Turkey

Gaziantep is the queen city of baklava, sobiyet, and yaprak sobiyet. You might consider it the dessert capital of Turkey. Main ingredient?  Pistachios. Other cities are just green with envy. All over Turkey, restaurants use the name Gaziantep to brand their baklava as if it were Key Lime Pie in the United States or Bakewell Tarts in England. [2014]
