Ekmek Kadayifi is a bread pudding - slices of bread are then soaked in syrup little by little so that the slices completely soak up the sugary sauce without becoming soggy. When the slices are completely soaked they are used to make a sandwich with a layer of thick cream, somewhat like British clotted cream, in between the bread layers. Often topped with chopped pistachios

Mastica shares the same origin as the English word mastication, which means to chew. So it makes sense that mastica kind of tastes like mouthwash -- when you think of chewing, you think of eating, and that makes you think of the need for minty clean breath, right? Mastica isn't so much a dessert as a flavoring that permeates a variety of Istanbul treats with a Pine-Sol-meets-spearmint-gum kind of taste.

Şekerpare is prepared by baking soft balls of pastry, then dipped in thick lemon sugar syrup. Because of the butter, semolina and syrup it is so soft, almost melts in your mouth. In spite of the syrup it's not too luscious.

Ceviz Sucugu is made by stringing walnuts together and then dipping them repeatedly into a grape paste much like jam. This is done repeatedly until the walnuts are completely coated and begin to look somewhat like a thin and lumpy “sausage”.

Patlican Macunu (Eggplant)    For many people, this dish sounds unusual at best, and downright disgusting if you aren’t an eggplant fan, but somehow the Cypriots have worked their magic over this vegetable and managed to turn it into a delectable sweet preserve. Boiled and then cooked in sugar, vanilla and cloves, the eggplants are perfect for putting in a jar, and are regularly available in this manner. A bit like tinned peaches or jam.
