Whether you are looking for a traditional Azerbaijan apple pie or the national dessert called Pahlava you are bound to be amazed by the interesting flavors of Azerbaijan desserts. Culinary arts are an intrinsic part of the Azerbaijan culture, and a meal is often considered incomplete without a good desert. The sweetness of the dessert is meant to compensate for the salty and often spicy dishes served for the main course. Other desserts names worth remembering are sheker bura, sheker tchurek (pies stuffed with nuts) and the interestingly flavored Oriental pastry - baklava. The variety of desserts is pretty much dependable on the kind of restaurant you are eating in – some may have a huge list of desserts to choose from, while others won’t even offer a cappuccino or ice cream dessert.
