    Turkish Delight, otherwise known as Lokum, is one of the most famous pieces of Turkish cuisine and one of Turkey’s greatest exports. Even though you may know and love the dessert, you may not know its origin or how it found its way to Great Britain and the rest of the western world.

    Traditional Lokum dates back over 500 years with the legend of its inception coming from Ottoman Court and Sultan Abdul Hamid. The story goes that Sultan Abdul Hamid was having difficulties with his many wives and mistresses, and thought that the secret to winning their hearts would be through food. Under this assertion, Hamid summoned the greatest confectioners within his empire to create a dessert that would be so delicious that it would create peace and harmony between the women within the palace. The plan worked and the results were so successful that Turkish Delight became an institution of the Ottoman Court from then on.
