In 2018, Gustavo Arellano wrote for the New Yorker about Le Mirage Pastry, a Syrian bakery in Anaheim making bouza, a chewy ice cream studded with pistachios. The process of making bouza is labor intensive and requires special machinery. For many Syrians in Orange County, it offers a taste of home that can’t be found anywhere else.
