I bought Sohan Asali from the brand Kermani Gaz .(Note: this is not a advertisement, they don’t know me or my blog).
Above: Lindor Chocolate and Marzipan
The box I used to serve these sweets is a famous Syrian wooden mosaic box, it comes as a set of three boxes (large, medium, small), you can find these boxes in different shapes like the octagonal as the one I have, or oval or square and others. I like to use it for chocolate, and it can be used for jewelery, or for decoration.
Marzipan is called “Hariseh” or “lawzina”, it s a specialty of Aleppo. It comes either plain which is only marzipan, or marzipan with pistachio filling like in the picture and called “Marzipan Fingers“. It’s also available colored and shaped into fruits.
