Aish as-Saraya (Arabic: عيش السرايا, literally: "palace bread", "عيش" is the Egyptian word for bread ) is an Egyptian and Levantine dessert, consisting of syrup-soaked breadcrumbs topped with clotted cream and pistachios. It contains neither eggs nor butter. It is popular in Lebanon and the Arab world.
Turkish delight or lokum is a family of confections based on a gel of starch and sugar. Premium varieties consist largely of chopped dates, pistachios, hazelnuts or walnuts bound by the gel; traditional varieties are often flavored with rosewater, mastic, Bergamot orange, or lemon. The confection is often packaged and eaten in small cubes dusted with icing sugar, copra, or powdered cream of tartar to prevent clinging. Other common flavors include cinnamon and mint. In the production process, soapwort may be used as an emulsifying additive.
The origin of the confection is not precisely known, but the candy is known to have been produced in Turkey as early as the late 18th century.
