Eat, eat, eat! October 25, 2015
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!
