Turkish delight, otherwise known as lokum, first appeared in Ottoman palaces during the 15th century. The delicacy was most often made from molasses, honey, flour and water. Tons of different varieties can be found in Turkey today–some made almost entirely of chopped dates or pistachio. Movie buffs and readers will remember the pivotal role played by the sweet in the story of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. This tiny boutique sells the most beautifully packaged gift boxes of freshly made Turkish delight. You can sample a half dozen varieties from rose water to cinnamon and then pick from the many colorful boxes decorated with evil eye charms or golden hands of Fatima to be packaged while you wait.
