Mid-East delights

Here is something else for those looking to serve something different during Christmas, New Year's and Chinese New Year - Middle Eastern pastries from overdoughs bakery.

Now, I know what you're thinking - wouldn't they be too sweet?

Not these ones.

I am especially enchanted by the pomegranate and pistachio Turkish Delight, so intensely flavoured and with a tart bite. The orange and hazelnut one is good too.

On the platter are four types of baklava, which are layers of filo pastry with nuts and other fillings in between.

All of them are good, but the apricot and pistachio one is excellent with a cup of strong tea.

Ma'amoul, a shortbread-like cookie with date chutney, rounds off the selection.

I marvel at the textures on this pretty platter - crisp baklava, crumbly ma'amoul and soft, pillowy Turkish Delight.
