A Pure Joy To The Palate


It is a delicacy, a pure joy to the palate that has a such rich history: this delicious creation is called Turrón or, in other words, Spanish nougat.

A Spanish delicacy for centuries, Turrón (turrón in Spanish, or torró in Catalan) is made by select confectioners, usually only at Christmas time in Spain. Carmen Valentine has created its version of the Spanish Turrón following the ancient tradition of combining the finest blanched almonds with raw, locally sourced orange blossom honey and whole Madagascan vanilla beans. Simple and natural ingredients, abundantly available in the Mediterranean basin.

Carmen Valentine Spanish Turrón is produced by Artisan Ooh La La Confectionery in South Africa who have won 77 Gold Star Awards from the Great Taste UK. The Great Taste ‘Oscars’ of the food world, organised by the Guild of Fine, is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. The Spanish Turrón won Gold in 2014.
