Torrone with Almonds and Orange Honey - Great for Holiday Gifts
Two hundred years ago Nonno Puddu, a renowned gelato maker in the baroque town of Giarratana, southern Sicily, was coerced by a Spanish invader into making his ‘turrón’ recipe. Invaders can be persuasive. The resulting almond-packed nougat was a triumph, and his torrone was soon so popular that he gave up his gelato business.

My Take on This
As a Sicilian I felt dismayed when I learned of this as I had never tried it before, but because my family was from this country, I knew that I had to try it. This nougat was wonderful and had just the right flavor. I am a person that loves having a connection with my past and this did just that. If you love having food that gives you a great connection tot he past (and tastes great too), you will want to check this out for yourself or give it as a gift to others!
