Syria to Brooklyn

Marhaf and Nawal ran a small bakery for over 20 years on a hilly street in Hama, Syria. They arrived to Brooklyn in 2016, on a mission to share the Syrian tradition of fresh, crispy, lightly sweet Baklava as well as lesser-known sweets with their new country.


Leaving our city and the house of our grandparents and great-grandparents and great-great grandparents has not been easy and we did not want to go. Baking keeps us going. Also, our new city needs good baklava.


Perfecting your baklava since 2500 BC. Now in Brooklyn.
