This article will explore Revani / Ravani, an Aegean

dessert that embodies a symmetrical harmony in its

cultural value, preparation, and presentation. Revani /

Ravani is a word meaning valuable, desirous, and

demanded. It is dessert that is served with great pride

to loved ones on any call for celebration such

religious holidays and weddings in two neighboring

countries that symmetrically lay across from one

another so called Greece and Turkey. What makes it

unique is that not only is it common to two cultures at

the micro level, more importantly, it is also a bridge

between the syrup-soaked sweets of the East and the

cake and patisserie culture of the West at the

macro level.
