kosher by design "brings it home" Halvah Baklava

Halvah Baklava & Kosher By Design Giveaway

In Dessert, Giveaway, Sweet On 02/22/2016 2 Comments

Message from Susie Fishbein’s Kosher by Design Brings it Home Cookbook:

My all­ time favorite stop in Machane Yehuda and in the new Sarona Market in Tel Aviv is Halva Kingdom. I think I have sampled all 60 flavors, or maybe that’s just the dream. This business was founded in 1947 by the grandfather of the current shop owner, Eli Maman. After the expulsion of Jews from the Old City of Jerusalem, the family moved the shop to Machane Yehuda Market. The recipe of their famous halvah is from Morocco, and it is hand­made with traditional methods from organic sesame seeds imported from Ethiopia.

This recipe, with its addition of halvah to baklava, is another gem that I learned at Te’amim Cooking School in Jerusalem (see page 16). The richness that the halvah adds to the baklava is outrageous.
