What are Mediterranean Sweets?
Mediterranean sweets are a collection of more than 40 types of sweet pastries, cookies, and cakes most famous in the Mediterranean and Middle East regions.
Baklava is the most famous among Mediterranean pastries, while Mamoul is the most popular Middle Eastern cookie.
Mediterranean sweets are often also called Middle Eastern sweets, Oriental sweets, or Arabic sweets.
What are Lebanese Sweets?
Lebanese sweets are the Lebanese version of Mediterranean sweets. Lebanon is one of the countries that contributed the most into the evolution of Middle Eastern and Arabic sweets.
In fact, many Middle Eastern sweets have originated in Lebanon and were exported to the world by Lebanese sweets manufacturers.
Classification of Mediterranean sweets
Mediterranean and Middle Eastern sweets can be classified into three major categories, namely assorted Baklava, Middle Eastern cookies and cakes, and cream and cheese filled pastries
Most Middle Eastern sweets are offered as a dessert.
Mamoul in particular is often offered with coffee or tea as it is lighter than baklava.
Knafeh, being the exception, is usually consumed as a breakfast. Because it is relatively very sweet and usually served as a large piece, it can solely constitute a full meal.
Gifting Mediterranean Sweets
Besides consuming Mediterranean sweets as a dessert at home or in restaurants, these sweets are the perfect gift on many occasions.
Mamoul (Middle Eastern cookies)
Lunch or Dinner Party Gift
Mediterranean sweets and pastries, especially Assorted Baklava, make a wonderful gift to present when invited to a friend's home for lunch or dinner. Many people find difficulties deciding what gift to take with them on such occasion.
The advantage of gifting a box of assorted Baklava is that it contains pieces of different levels of sweetness ranging from light such as Fingers and Kol Weshkor to very sweet such as Borma and Ballorieh guaranteeing that each person will find the perfect piece that satisfies his or her sweet tooth.
On holidays, in Lebanon and Middle Eastern countries, Arabic sweets are the natural gift. It is hardly possible for a holiday to pass and not to gift or to receive Middle Eastern sweets.
