Compare pureBAKLAVA with ordinary baklava and the differences are easy to see… and taste.
Nuts are everywhere, not jammed in one single layer.
To save time, many bakers use this shortcut. They layer filo on top of filo, then place all of the nuts in a single layer or two in the middle. It’s faster and saves time, but filo-on-filo ends up tasting like a glob of dough. This shortcut also cuts the volume of nuts used, reducing costs at the expense of flavor. Our artisan approach doesn’t use any shortcuts that sacrifice flavor to save either time or expense. Our baklava has nuts everywhere. "So What?" you ask. The picky truth is that the nuts keep filo layers separated from one another so the BAKLAVA bakes more evenly. Plus, the separation creates endless nooks and crannies to soak up our scratch-made syrup. You’ll taste the difference.
It was just baked.
Something that’s freshly baked is bursting with flavors that go flat over time. Freshness is our top priority, so we’ll only ship baklava to you that's freshly baked. It is the reason our availability is limited. It's as close to how you would do it yourself.
Walnut pieces are a bit bigger without nut meal.
If you examine the walnuts in ordinary BAKLAVA, you’ll see that they're tiny particles or super-fine nut meal. The nut size matters because when the nuts are a bit larger, they add an unmistakable crunch to every bite. One reviewer called them "toothsome." While it sounds nuts, uniform nut pieces are one of the secrets to pure BAKLAVA flavor.
The ingredients are all natural and fresh.
You can taste the difference from fresh, pure ingredients in every bite. We start with the same plentiful real, natural ingredients you would use at home, and don’t add anything else. Fresh walnuts shipped directly from the California grower; fresh filo dough from the source, not frozen; pure granulated cane sugar; creamery pure butter; aromatic Saigon cinnamon and a splash of our secret ingredients. That’s it. No preservatives. Nothing else. Learn more > >
When BAKLAVA is packed with plentiful ingredients, it stacks up tall to nearly 2 inches. Layer upon layer of nuts and buttery filo, oozing with our house-made syrup that accentuates the pure ingredients and satisfies your craving. Mmm.
