- Baklava is a rich, sweet dessert pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup. It is characteristic of the cuisines of the Levant, the Caucasus, Balkans, Maghreb, and of Central and West Asia. (Mostly former Ottoman Empire states)
- The word baklava is first attested in English in 1650, a borrowing from Ottoman Turkish. The name baklava is used in many languages with minor variations.
- Although the history of baklava is not well documented, its current form was probably developed in the imperial kitchens of the Topkapı Palace in İstanbul. The Sultan presented trays of baklava to the Janissaries every 15th of the month of Ramadan in a ceremonial procession called the Baklava Alayı.
- The city of Gaziantep in southeast Turkiye is famous for its pistachio baklava and it regards itself as the native city for this dish. In 2013, Gaziantep Baklavası was registered as a Protected Geographical Indication by the European Commission.
