History of Turkish Delight


Turkish Delight (lokum), which is derived from the Ottoman word “rahat ul-hulküm”, meaning throat reliever, has been known in Anatolia since about the 15th century, but it became widespread within the borders of the Ottoman Empire, especially in the 17th century. In Europe, it started to be known in the 18th century as “Turkish Delight” through an English traveler.
