ba·kla·va

 (bä′klə-vä′, bä′klə-vä′)
n.
A dessert made of paper-thin layers of pastry, chopped nuts, and honey.

[Ultimately (partly via Greek and Armenian) from Ottoman Turkish, possibly colloquial alteration of baklavī, chain mail (perhaps because a tray of baklava cut into lozenges somewhat resembles chain mail), from Ottoman naval jargon bakla, chain link, from Ottoman Turkish bakla, fava bean (the oblong shape of a chain link being likened to that of a bean), from Arabic baqla, leguminous plant, from baqala, to sprout; akin to Akkadian baqālu, to malt, sprout, and Ge'ez baqwala, to sprout.]

The smell of steaming rice with heady saffron, the smell of oranges from the Caspian being peeled, the taste of the first fresh pistachios of the season sprinkled with salt, the tangy slightly bitter taste of Omani limes in Khoreshteh Ghormeh Sabzi -- a fresh four herb stew with tender pieces of lamb, the smell of rose water and the sticky sweetness of my great-aunt's Baghlava.
