  • About

These simits, baked during the Kandil religious feast days (see p.17), have a special flavour that comes from mahleb. On Kandil days the air outside bakeries and patisseries is filled with the smell of kandil simits, creating a special festive atmosphere. Kandil simidi goes well with salep.
