Torrone is a beloved holiday tradition in both Italy and Spain; and rightly so, as this almond and pistachio soft nougat treat is really quite delicious.
Torrone is a famous Italian nougat that can be found all year long, but is particularly enjoyed during the Christmas holidays; many versions of it exist but its main ingredients are generally almonds, honey, sugar, and egg whites. Torrone is the perfect Christmas dessert, delicious at the end of every meal and very good as an afternoon snack with some tea or coffee too.
Fiasconaro was founded in Castelbuono, Sicily in 1953 by Mario Fiasconaro. Mario started out as an ice-cream maker and pastry chef, and his first great masterpieces were mountains of profiteroles. His three sons, Fausto, Nicola, and Martino, began learning the art of pastry when they were children. Today, the three brothers still lead the company.
