  • Baklava Presentation

    Okay I am at a loss so I am asking you, the experts for help. I am thinking about entering a recipe contest with my grandma's baklava recipe. Part of the judging will be on presentation. Does anyone have any good ideas on different ways to plate baklava?

        I've seen baklava squares in muffin cups, but don't feel that shows off the beautiful layers. Maybe the pieces could be cut in 2 or 3 shapes instead of just one, and displayed on a tiered platter.

        I googled and found this - LOTS of photos and what looks like many different twists on the original. Possibly you will find one you admire and can duplicate it.

            My sister is drawing a blank and the only thing she can think of is presenting them on fig or grape leaves. She's still researching. She can't locate her greek cookbook.

              what about crushing some nuts (the kind in the baklava, I prefer the pistacio ones) and lightly dust the plate/platter with the nuts, that will help the sticky baklava not stick to the plate. Maybe a few drops of honey around the plate, not alot, they're usually plenty on it already. Put a drop and run a knife thru it to make a tear drop design.

                  also put a little bit (or whole) nut in the drop of honey

                      Here are two baklava presentation picture links. The third link is a google results page with TONS of pictures of various types of baklava. Perhaps you could get ideas from them and form your own ideas.

                      Hope these are helpful:

                        I kinda like the pattern that has the shape of a windmill, but that's pretty common.
