Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron’s comments on social media calling the traditional Turkish dessert the “best thing” she ever tasted.
Netflix Turkey shared a short Charlize Theron clip on Twitter of the action movie “The Old Guard” in which actress apparently enjoys the traditional Turkish delicacy.
Charlize Theron responded to the post, saying: “Best thing I’ve ever tasted. Heard they have the best at Gaziantep,” referring to the province in southeastern Turkey.
The actress’s praise was welcomed by baklava makers in Gaziantep.
Gaziantep’s mayor, Fatma Sahin, said baklava was included on the menu at the 2019 Academy Awards ceremony and invited the actress to the province.
“Dear @CharlizeAfrica, we invite you to Gaziantep to taste the best baklava ever,” she tweeted.
