Food on Film: Turkish Delight

This is a series about films that have tempted my palate and inspired me to expand my culinary horizons.

The inaugural post on this topic could not have started with any other film besides The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Now not only is it a pivotal scenes in the film, but it looked great – the candy and the scene.

It took me a bit of time to be able to follow-through on my curiosity as to what specifically the appeal of Turkish Delight is, but when I did I fell in love.

If you’re interested in finding it I’d look in ethnic food stores or stands. That’s where I’ve had my fortunate finds in the past. If you prefer a bit of surety, there is one North American manufacturer, Bayco Confectionery, that you can buy from online. They even have a very cool Narnia gift box.

I have a sweet tooth anyway, but I was glad to find it finally. On its own it’s become one of my favorite sweets, but connecting it to a film I like immensely adds to it.
