A homage to Levantine dishes, our cheese and rosemary honey kadaif is crisp with a smooth centre – it would make a wonderful dinner party starter.
Love this sweet and savoury combo? Our whole-baked feta is drizzled with honey before being baked until gooey perfection.

This is a hybrid of two Levantine dishes – kadaif and kanafeh. Kadaif is a type of baklava, with a filling of nuts, drenched in honey. Kanafeh is a special type of cheese pastry, soaked in sugar syrup and served as dessert. This version is made to be a starter or lunch dish and was inspired by the restaurant Lokanta Maya in Istanbul.
Kataifi (kadaif) pastry is shredded bric or filo pastry and is available from Turkish shops or from melburyandappleton.co.uk. It freezes well, so it’s worth stocking up.
