Chattanooga has gained notoriety in recent years for its growing ethnic food scene and for good reason. Restaurants representing far-flung corners of the globe are wowing diners with their quality ingredients and expert flavor combinations. While these establishments are dishing up their fair share of show-stopping mains, those with a sweet tooth fret not! Here, we highlight worldly desserts from some of the city’s top cultural eateries.
“Knafeh is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert made with kataifi and cheese that is soaked in a sweet syrup (called attar) and finished with pistachio. At Calliope, our version is a little different. We add a second layer of the buttery, crunchy kataifi, and we opt for fresh ricotta instead of the traditional sweet cheese.”
