Nougat and its sad story


Nougat (called "turrón" in Spain) is a candy widely associated with the Christmas season. Not many people, however, know the sad story behind it. 
Folklore says that the almond nougat was the creation of Catalonia-based master confectioner Pablo Turrons. He is said to have made survival portions for people in Barcelona during the Spanish War of Succession (1701-1714) by mixing the ingredients that were at hand at that moment: sugar, almonds and honey.
