According to legend, the first Turkish delight recipe was actually created when a sultan ordered his confectioner to create a unique sweet, perhaps to seduce one of his reluctant wives. Delighted with this opportunity to please his sultan, his confectioner blended a concoction of honey, various flavourings, nuts and some dried fruit, and then bound them together with mastic - a kind of natural gum that grows on a certain Mediterranean tree. The result of his efforts, seemed to work wonders for the sultan, and from then on, Turkish delight became an institution at the daily feasts of the Ottoman court.
With sultans and daily feasts as a thing of the past, nowadays, Turkish Delight is kept hidden somewhere in the kitchen, ready to be served with a cup of strong Turkish coffee to the most valued of guests, as a delightful sign of welcome.
