I think I died and went to heaven! Kanafeh is the best dessert ever! It's a Levantine (an historical geographical word referring to a large area in the eastern Mediterranean) cheese pastry. First, the pastry is kneaded with ghee, then covered with Levantine cheese and baked on a big copper pan called a sidr, until the cheese is stretchy, like mozzarella and the pastry is a dark brown. Then, as if that's not enough, it's smothered in cashews, pistachios and hot syrup!
I had two kinds: one with wiry shredded wheat and the other without. OMG! No calories are included-
Supper was a roll?? - a pita stuffed with turkey, cheese, lettuce and tomato, then grilled like a panini-
Looking forward to Jerash and the Dead Sea tomorrow!
