CALISSON

 

Calisson is a traditional French treat which is a complex mixture of finely ground bitter sweet almonds, melons of Cavaillon and candied orange zest, set on a thin layer of wafer and topped with royal icing.

THE ENCHANTING LOVING STORY OF CALISSON

Calisson was created by the confectioner of the King Le Roy René in 1454 at the King’s wedding banquet. His Queen - Jeanne de Laval, who always looked grim, began to smile after trying the delicacy. She asked what it was and, in Provence language was told: “Di Calin Soun” sounding in French like Calisson and meaning “These are little hugs”. The shape is said to be representing the Queen’s smile.
