At Alibaba Cuisine, we believe in eating the desserts first!
Committing to the Mediterranean diet means you won’t be eating desserts daily, but hey, you have got to live! This means celebrating life with Mediterranean desserts made to perfection that remind you of memories you didn’t know you had. If you’ve sunk your teeth into a fudgy hot brownie or a forkful of chocolate cake, then you know what we’re talking about.
Our take on Mediterranean Desserts
Our walnut and pistachio baklava with thin flaky pastry and the perfect blend of spices with a drizzle of honey on top is the closest thing to a piece of heaven you can get on earth! It’s a traditional Lebanese dessert that has become a favorite dessert around the world which we serve at Alibaba Cuisine to perfection.
Mediterranean desserts follow its guideline pretty closely, so you can satisfy your cravings without going overboard on the sugar. They swap butter with olive oil and use whole wheat flour instead of refined flour. The Mediterranean treats, even with their tweaks, are deserving of their own spot on your dinner table.
It’s More than just a delicious dessert
If the taste isn’t enough to get you into the door, then the baklava has many health benefits as well. Walnuts and pistachio are high in unsaturated fats, an incredible source of copper, magnesium, vitamin E, and folic acid. The pastry is low-caloric and free from saturated and trans-fats, while honey offers natural sugars that regulate blood sugar levels and fight cancerous cells.
The baklava gives dense and intense flavors that are beloved by all palates. If you have a sweet tooth, then this is the dish for you. You can satisfy all sweet cravings without inviting sugar problems or worry about extra calories.
We are rather unapologetic at stating that the baklava is the most influential Mediterranean dessert of all. So when’s the best time to have some? Anytime you want! That’s the beauty of it. Alibaba Cuisine is ready to serve your sweet needs for a special occasion or to make your day better!
