This delicious pastry makes for a great Wedding Favor and is an amazing dessert item for your wedding menu!

For those of you who have not tried it before, Baklava is a rich, sweet pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup or honey. It is characteristic of the cuisines of the Levant, the Caucasus, Balkans, Maghreb, and of Central and West Asia.

This Mouth watering pastry tastes unbelievable when it is topped with Fresh Cream and Pistachio or (a personal favorite) when it is warmed up slightly and topped with Vanilla Ice Cream.

Nestled within an unassuming residential building in Mumbai, there exists a kitchen which dishes out authentic Baklava with all the original flavors passed down through time immemorial.

Not only that, Turkish Affaire, started by Neeta Talreja, offers only Pure Vegetarian Baklava which has a shelf life of a month without refrigeration!

Crushed Pistachio kernels are nestled between layers of hand stretched filo pastry, topped with rose, honey, and pure clarified butter.

They offer some great options too, in addition to the classic recipe, they have varieties of flavors such as Salted Caramel, Date and Walnut, Mixed Nuts etc.

Says Neeta,”We go to great lengths to make sure our clients have a fantastic overall experience. We meet them and understand exactly what they are looking for in terms of personalisation and packaging. Our goal is to offer a great product with great value and convenience. Once a client has placed an order with us for Favors, they no longer have anything to worry about”

“We are different from our competitors because we offer a taste of original Turkish Baklava which is impossible to find in Mumbai”, Says Neeta.

If you would like to try it, they are just a call away! at +919869134323, they cater not only to weddings but also any kind of gifting required. From a personal opinion, they are great to stock up at home too!

This interactive and unique concept for weddings will blow your mind!

We all love weddings, with innovation at its peak in today’s day and age, happily-weds-to-be, and guests are always expecting to do and experience something unique when they attend a wedding.

Started in 2016,‘The Perfume Bar’ is one such unique concept, where you get to entertain and engage your guests in a way that helps them create their own fragrance!

The concept stems from the idea that the fragrance someone wears is an extension of their personality and it offers a very unique experience when you can customize and make it yourself.

Their scents are designed for everyone and are made with the finest ingredients and blended to perfection with minute attention to detail paid to the elegant packaging of the product which BTW, can be totally customized as per your specifications 🙂

It is set-up as a live counter at any venue: indoors or outdoors and is an amazing activity for guests at a Mehendi function which also doubles up as a counter for wedding favors or at any wedding function. You can also organize a Perfume Party or a workshop where people can get together and try their hand at creating their own fragrance.

Says Apeksheet Pednekar from The Wedding Co.,”We worked with the Perfume Bar for a Mehendi function at JW Marriott, Mumbai. It was on a beautiful summer evening and guests were left amazed at how easy and creative the idea was, I personally received at least 3 more inquiries!”

The person to reach for the above goodness is Hussain and the number you can reach him on +91-9820044787.

We definitely like the idea, what do you think?
