On a recent trip to Azerbaijan, my husband returned home bearing gifts. In a little wooden box, with a matching wooden lid nailed down on top, stood a sticky sweet dessert wrapped in layers of plastic wrap. Inside lay a solid mass of finely chopped nuts, covered with crunchy vermicelli noodles and soaked in honey. I'm not positive, but I think the whole thing had to have been pressed somehow. Anyway, the result is a surprisingly crunchy, not to sweet mouthfull of deliciousness!
I love the little tasty surprises that one discovers when traveling and living overseas.
