Kontos Foods Unwraps Baklava Bonanza: Giveaway & Virtual Baking Class for National Baklava Day

National Baklava Day is Nov. 17, and Kontos Foods is celebrating with a Baklava Bonanza: Giveaway & Virtual Baking Class. Baklava, which is traditionally prepared for religious holidays in November and December, is a rich cake made of layered Fillo, and nuts, baked and then drenched in honey.
