Calissons & Nougats
The recipe of Maison Brémond's calissons has stayed the same since 1830 : a crushed mix of candied melons and Provence almonds, layed on a leaf of unleavened bread and covered with a thin layer of royal icing.
Our nougats are made following the traditional recipe of the authentic nougat from Provence.
Traditional calissons d’Aix
Calissons d'Aix are sweetmeats which are famous all over the world and much appreciated for their sweetness. They are made with crushed almonds and candied melon placed between a sheet of rice paper and a layer of royal icing. It is easy to recognise with its shuttle or diamond shape. A little delicacy to go with your tea or coffee.
We have been using the same recipe since 1830 for our Aix en Provence calissons.
We also have original variations in pretty boxes: calissons with figs, lavender, raspberry or even lemon.
Try our organic calissons, made with 100% natural ingredients which respect Provencal tradition.
