A journey through the Mediterranean history of a confectionery

The true story of nougat

TAMBAO: All kinds of nougat - Marie Josèphe Moncorgé

Where does the nougat come from? The nougat is a typical confectionery of the Mediterranean countries. Its origin is ancient. It's first of all a drug before it's a confectionery. The first recipes for white nougat come from an Arab book from Baghdad in the 10th century. The nougat is then called nātif.

The nougat can be black or white. Its name, shape and making are different from one country to another: nougat in France, torrone or copeta in Italy, turrón in Spain, jabane in Morocco, qubbajt in Malta, koz helva in Turkey, mandolato in Greece, gas in Iran, etc.
