Albania: Ajvar and Baklava

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Albania, Food, Travel

Traveller One of Stepping Stones lists [1] two of her favorite Balkan dishes: Ajvar (“a luscious combination of roasted red peppers and eggplant”) and Baklava (“Ohhhhhh my goodness…. this is like eating the food of the gods…”). The former is originally from Macedonia; the latter is found in 22 national cuisines, according to Wikipedia.
