The Baklava Challenge

We asked you, our listeners what you wanted to hear next, and you said, “Baklava!”. So our team competed against each other to find the best baklava story:

[03:55] Hebah’s Story: Harissat Al Halaby

[18:35] Alex’s Story: The World’s Largest Baklava

[33:50] Dana’s Story: Mama’s (Burnt) Baklava
