Knafeh is a cheesy pastry soaked in rosewater and honey syrup and toped with roasted pistachios. Each bite is filled with tradition, history, a fusion of flavors and great familial moments and festivities.I grew up eating knafeh almost weekly. It's a dessert that doesn't need an occasion to be served, though it's quite popular during weddings, holidays, or even given as a gift.
Many countries across the Middle East claim that knafeh originated in their region, and its pronunciation varies greatly from region to region: k-na-fe, kunafe kinafeh, kuneefa, kunafah etc.. Despite the controversy over its origin, it remains one of the most delicious Middle Eastern desserts!
