Here at Lavolio we’re always looking for new challenges and paths to explore. Our passion is, as always, one-of-a-kind luxury confectionery and sometimes we chance upon new flavours and recipes that are so delicious we feel compelled to share them with you.
This is how our latest adventure began and resulted in us creating a completely new line of delicious Lavolio Soft Nougat. This sumptuous confectionery is brought to you in three different flavours: Toasted Almond, Pistachio and Hazelnut mixed with cocoa.
Lavolio Soft Nougat has its beginnings in the Italian artisan tradition, and we combined an extremely high nut content with the best tastes and flavours of Italian confectionery. We are extremely proud of this new product which is completely different to any other nougat you will have ever tried. Lavolio Soft Nougat has a pillowy texture which will caress your palate and melt in your mouth giving you a wonderfully pleasurable sensory experience!
The recipe for this decadent confectionery sounds straight-forward and simple to replicate – it basically involves combining honey, sugar and egg whites with nuts such as hazelnuts, pistachios or almonds – but the really difficult part is getting the texture right. It has to be soft and not sticky! Our Lavolio nougat is handmade in Italy, and we closely guard our artisan’s secret family recipes which have been passed down through generations.
This soft and sweet pleasure can be enjoyed at any time of the day – it’s perfect to accompany an afternoon tea break or as an after-dinner treat to end the day with a luxurious indulgence which has no equal.
Lavolio Soft Nougat is also the perfect gift under £5 to take to a dinner party and whose delicious flavours are unrivalled.
The origins of this delicious sweet treat are Italian and the story goes that nougat can be traced back to ancient Roman times. In fact the Italian name “torrone” is derived from the Latin verb torreo which means to toast and it refers to the toasted nuts which form the basis of nougat.
