Battle of Victoria's best Baklava to be settled in Bake-Off
Calling all lovers of Baklava and Middle Eastern cuisine. An event not to be missed. Get your sweet tooths down to Federation Square this Sunday afternoon to witness this epic battle of chopped nuts, crispy pastry and fragrant sugar syrup.
The 2013 Baklava Bake Off, supported by the State Government and Australian Multicultural Foundation, is an initiative to celebrate cultural diversity through Melbourne's love of this delicious dessert.
Contestants from various cultural backgrounds have been battling it out through several rounds of tasting and judging. It has now come down to the final ten contestants (5 pastry chefs and 5 home cooks) who will be battling it out in a live Baklava showdown.
The Baklava Bake Off Grand Final will be judged by a live panel of experts including celebrity chef Shane Delia of Maha Restaurant. There will also be Baklava-making demonstrations from Greg Malouf and Cecile Veyrat of PM24 to help you perfect the art of Baklava making.
