Turron is Spanish and is made with almonds, honey and eggwhites. A variety to Nougat.
In 1923, Vital Gormez, scion of a respected line of candy-makers, left his birthplace Constantinople (now Istanbul) to discover the secrets of nougat in all of its incarnations. His path brought him to Montélimar, Alicante and Verona, where he learned about French nougat, Spanish turròn and jijona, and the hard Italian torrone. He perfected his craft and discovered the benefits of the long shelf life of these traditional delicacies.
