HISTORY OF NOUGAT
Soft and creamy confectionery that dates back to Antiquity, nougat is made from egg white, honey and almonds.
At the time, it was made in the East with almonds, honey and spices. Its manufacture was also known to the Greeks who made it with nuts. In the 14th century, confectioners in Damascus, Syria, decided to make a softer nougat and incorporate Aleppo pistachio. This dried fruit also has the property of providing a pleasant scent.
Various soft and hard varieties have appeared over the years. Real nougat, as we know it today, appeared in the middle of the 18th century. Egg whites, melted with honey and sugar have been added
which allows the dough to aerate well.
THE BIRTH OF LA NOUGATERIE
TASTE OUR AUTHENTIC TREATS
Both Europeans, owners Patrick Augier and Caroline Marelli are steeped in the culture of confectionery, and have been in business for over 35 years in the fields of cooking and baking.
Having become a resident of Quebec in 2006, this couple will open two years later a magnificent boutique, “Aux petits douceurs”, located in the same location as “La Nougaterie”. You will find local products, Quebec creations and, as the name says so well, “little sweets”.
The idea came a few years later to produce all these little treats they offered at their store.
Thus, thanks to their know-how acquired over several years in France, they concoct their sweets with love and passion, in collaboration with Cécile, the mistress of confectionery and chocolate.
