5. Halva

Halva seems to be made all over the world, but in different countries it differs in composition and taste. The good old sunflower halva is sold only in Eastern Europe, but in the West and Asia it is a completely different product. In Central Asia and the Caucasus, it is prepared on the basis of flour and butter, in India – from vegetables and milk, in the Mediterranean – from ground sesame. So emigrants who have forgotten the taste of “real” halva often ask their relatives to bring it from Russia.
