I live half a world away from Britain and never imagined that I would finally get to eat Turkish Delight. Decades after reading The Chronicles of Narnia, I had a vivid imagination of what Turkish delight would be.
What did I imagine?
Toffee-tasting, nutty chocolate so delicious a person couldn’t put it down.
What was it?
A strange thick gel, like really thick jello with a subdued taste surrounding by a thin layer of chocolate.
So that was a disappointment, but the regency romances I love mentioned treacle. That was yummy! Now I just have to find a place that sells marzipan…
