nougat


Cubbaita or Giuggiulena is made with honey, sugar, sesame seeds, toasted almonds and orange or lemon zest.

In Italy, torrone is a traditional Christmas dessert—a sweet, toasted-almond candy—with many famous regional variations.

The term “torrone” probably comes from the latin verb “torrere,” or to toast, referring to the toasted almonds.

This Almond nougat is an excellent sweet that you find all over Sicily throughout the year, but during Christmas time it becomes an absolute must have dolce in every Sicilian household, part of the nougat (aranciata, kubaita, torrone bianco) selection served at the end of a meal together with dried fruit.
