Athena Sweet Athena


For the first time in Baklava’s history, we are proud to present six baklava varieties inspired by different times and cultures -from Persia and the Middle East to the Mediterranean.




Hikma

SUNFLOWER, PUMPKIN & FLAXSEEDS, MASTIC, CARDAMOM

Wisdom. The pinnacle of the Arab Golden Age.

Imagine wise men in the 8th century Baghdad discussing Aristotle and scribbling for the first time the numbers we all use today. Then taking a break from algebra {al-jabr} to enjoy a piece of Baklava filled with various seeds and flavoured with cardamom and mastic… a reunion of parts indeed!

Spahan

PISTACHIO, ROSEWATER, POMEGRANATE, PRUNE, CARDAMOM

The middle-Persian name for an age old city - the gathering place of the armies.

Imagine people of different beliefs in the huge square {Naghsh-e-Jahan} exchanging world views and trading rugs. Listen to them praising the various editions of rosewater flavoured Baklava with pistachio, prune and pomegranate… they can tell even the slightest differences!

Melike

DATES, ALMOND, DARK CHOCOLATE, CARDAMOM

A female leader. A ruler of a realm: a kingdom or a kitchen.

Imagine strong women in Mesopotamia or in the Levant, virtually everywhere in the world anytime in history, ordering the choicest food to be brought to them from caravans or malls. Follow them as they preparea princely Baklava with dates, chocolate, almonds and cardamon… they command our wishes!

Diwan

WALNUT, ALMOND, RAISINS, SESAME

A word for Book, Council, Collection of Poems and Comfortable Couch.

Imagine of old times in the Middle East when books were so rare that the word for book also meant the important people who used it and the couches they sat on. After the ministers and the Viziers came the poets and the word traveled from the East to the West. Words are like recipes. Meanings are like ingredients. They evolve and so does Baklava.

Amir

CRANBERRIES, HAZELNUT, ALMOND, DARK CHOCOLATE

The noble ruler, the pious commander.

Imagine riders on Arab horses hunting with their falcons. Imagine head of states, leaders of people, patrons of trading routes from the Far to the Near East. They eat only what pleases their senses and replenishes their strength. Their dessert is traditional and exotic in equal measures: a golden crusted Baklava with berries, hazelnut, almond and dark chocolate.

Palmyra

FIG, APRICOT, APPLE, ALMOND, HONEY

A melting pot at the crossroads of Mesopotamia.

Imagine a city marked by Semitic ancestry, Egyptian burial rites, Grecian politics, Roman administration and Arabian mobility. Trace its two million years of hardships, splendours, falls and rebirths; and all the while, caravans keep passing through and resting in its gardens. What better treat for dignitaries, traders and officers than a Baklava rich in fig, apricot, apple, almond and honey?
