Torrone - the Italian nougat - is the Piedmontese dessert with the most ancient origin. There is a testimony of Pliny, in Roman times, according to which a local population, the Taurini, produced a dessert made of honey and pine nuts: the ancestor of Torrone. It was also widespread in the Middle Age as a celebratory wedding dessert. Today, Torrone is a classic Italian sweet to enjoy year-round or a typical gift around the holiday season. Many different regions produce their own version, the one from Piedmont is characterized by the use of hazelnuts, and Sardinia shares with us a softer, melty version to enjoy.
