Baklava Business Takes off

Posted on March 9th, 2019

Zoey Aldahash stacked tissue-thin filo dough in a pan and brushed each layer with butter as she began a batch of baklava Tuesday at a central Casper commercial kitchen. In a center layer, she spread ground pistachios and walnuts and began buttering and stacking again. A few months ago, Aldahash worked as an architect for a small firm in Casper. Now she makes baklava and hummus full time for her booming business, Sweet Zoey. Many who stop by her booth at the weekly Wyoming Food for Thought Winter Makers Market and local events have never tried baklava. Some have never even heard of the traditional sweet that’s widespread across the Middle East and has been her favorite treat since she was a child growing up in Iraq, she said. “I don’t know if it’s something related to being an architect or it’s something in my personality, I always look for something different, something that’s not here,” Aldahash said. “So I thought, why don’t I make something from the Middle East, or from my culture, from my family, from my country, and bring it here to Casper.”
