Being as polite and as sweet as Baklava is,...I believe it is Arabic desert in origin, but Greeks adopted it, and gave it their own name the %26quot;Baklava%26quot;...you can buy it in both in Arabic %26amp; Greek delis.

I have eaten the dessert known as Baklava in both Turkey and Greece. I think it has a different name in Turkey (I%26#039;m too lazy to check) It is actually a very common dessert also in both Lebanon and Syria, in fact the best Baklava I have ever eaten was in a Lebanese restaurant in Puebla, Mexico. (also the very best %26quot;Arab tacos%26quot; which Puebla is justly famous for - the name is %26quot;Tonys%26quot; and its in the center of Puebla if anyone is interested.....)

It is commonly claimed to be a Greek dessert, and a staple of most Greek restaurant%26#039;s menu. However, ast the previous answer-er stated, it is most likely central Asian in origin, finding its way down the Silk Road into Turkey. What you must understand is this--the Greeks don%26#039;t necessarily care for the Turks, and vice versa (overall, not on a person by person basis--I lived in Athens and OH the mouthing I heard when I asked if they had Turkish coffee once). There is a Turkish version, not as common in America and often mislabeled as Turkish Delight (it%26#039;s not--actual Turkish Delight is completely different). What we consider %26quot;baklava%26quot; is more than likely the Greek version. Howver, if you ask a Grecian or a Turk who made it, each will probably claim origin and the better kind. Personally, I love them both. Greek Baklava tends to be more syrup-y in taste, and Turkish tends to be a bit more %26quot;meaty%26quot; than honey-like.

The history of baklava is not well-documented; but although it has been claimed by many ethnic groups, the best evidence is that it is of Central Asian Turkic origin, with its current form being developed in the imperial kitchens of the Topkap? Palace.[3]

answer from chineseop.com cooking QA
It%26#039;s common all over the Middle East and North Africa, including both Greece and Turkey. Even as far east as India one can find similar pastries.
The exact place of its origin is probably lost in the mists of time.
answer from chineseop.com cooking QA
turkish, but it spread to many cultures
ps; how can people leave rude answers on a question of the origin of some food?
