Torrone – A sticky Italian job

Posted on November 17th, 2012 by Stefania Del Zotto

Torrone (also know as nougat) reminds me of long Christmas meals with my family which usually finished eating little oranges and torrone candies. I don’t know how we all managed to eat Torrone sweets after a full Italian Christmas dinner…but we did, it was (and still is) part of the Christmas tradition.

So for the ones of you who are in Italy this week end and not far from the beautiful Cremona, I would suggest to go and have a stroll around the torrone market which is held here every year. You can find all the details in the Festa del Torrone website.

They are made by simple ingredients like honey, sugar and egg white, with toasted almonds or other nuts and it is said Romans used them and considered Torrone as a specialty for rich people. I think it would be a nice idea to have a few of them for a candy bar at your wedding…

I’ve never managed to make one, but if you’d like to try I would suggest to try this recipy…I love the final result!
