*Mastering the art of halva.*
In many parts of the world, the unique and challenging process of making halva—it isn’t easy achieving its one-of-a-kind, crispy-airy-luscious texture—is a skill that’s passed down between generations and usually requires apprenticeship. In short, a fudgy base made mostly of tahini is heated and combined with a sugar foaming agent that aerates the mixture. After plenty of kneading, cooling and shaping, the loaves we know as halva are packaged and ready to be eaten.
