Real Turkish Delight

Real Turkish Delight was established back in 1974 by Bahattin Pektuzun. When he immigrated from Turkey to Australia with his young family he brought with him the art of making this unique confectionery

Real Turkish Delight

Whilst the origin of the sweet treat isn’t exactly known, production can be traced back to Turkey as early as the 1700’s, hence the name Turkish Delight. Lokum as it’s traditionally called, is a sweet blend of starch and sugar to form a jelly like consistency.

Premium varieties may consist of nuts such as hazelnut, pistachios and dates, whilst the traditional flavours are Rosewater, Bergamot, Lemon and Orange.

Turkish Delights wrapped in lace were once a gift item amongst Royals and Socialites. Couples exchanged them as a token of their love, they were presented to parents when asking for their daughters hands in marriage and intricate platters of the delicacy where taken to other significant special and somber occasions in life.

Today, Turkish Delights are still enjoyed by many around the world.
