After enjoying the position of “Andy” within the Netflix film “The Old Guard,” Charlize Theron on Saturday shared her admiration for the candy Turkish staple baklava, prompting an invite from the mayor of Turkey’s southeastern Gaziantep province.
Replying to Netflix Turkey’s tweet saying, “Afiyet olsun,” which implies “Enjoy” in Turkish, with a scene of her smelling the dessert and figuring out it as Turkish, she wrote: “Best factor I’ve ever tasted. Heard they’ve one of the best at Gaziantep…”
Gaziantep Mayor Fatma Şahin later tweeted that Theron was welcome to go to town to “style one of the best baklava ever.” In a separate assertion, she stated the wonderful taste of baklava couldn’t be absolutely appreciated by solely making an attempt one piece. “We determined to ship her baklava and invited her to come right here,” Şahin stated, including that they may also invite her formally. “We shall be more than pleased to host Theron in Gaziantep, the capital of gastronomy and taste.”
Made with 35 or extra layers of skinny dough brushed with butter and doused in candy syrup, baklava is available in quite a few shapes, sizes and flavors and is wildly standard each in Turkey and all over the world. It is historically consumed on particular days, from non secular festivals to household celebrations. Turks eat a median of 4.Four kilograms (9.7 kilos) of baklava per 12 months, in accordance to an affiliation of baklava cooks.
