By the 9th century, this yummy treat has been eaten by kings all across Europe!

The earliest Persian recipes have been documented in the 13th-century Arabic book Kitab al-Tabikh (The Book of Dishes), as well as an anonymous cookbook from 13th-century Moorish Spain. Halva was adopted and expanded by the Ottoman Turks, including a sesame-based version, and spread throughout their empire.
