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. Sometimes, we chance upon new flavours and recipes that are so delicious we just have to share them with you.
This is how our latest adventure began. The result is us creating a completely new line of delicious Lavolio Soft Nougat. This sumptuous confectionery has three different gourmet flavours: Toasted Almond, Pistachio and Hazelnut & Cocoa.
What is Soft Nougat?
Lavolio Soft Nougat has its beginnings in the Italian artisan tradition. So, we decided to combine an extremely high nut content with the best tastes and flavours of Italian confectionery. And now, 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!
How is Soft Nougat made?
The recipe for this decadent confectionery sounds straight-forward and simple to replicate. Basically, it 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.
What’s the best way to enjoy Soft Nougat?
Essentially, you can enjoy this soft and sweet pleasure at any time of the day. It’s perfect to accompany an afternoon tea break or as an after-dinner treat. What could be better than to end the day with a luxurious indulgence which has no equal? Lavolio Soft Nougat is also the perfect gift under £10 to take to a dinner party. In fact, its delicious flavours are unrivalled, and everyone will love it.
The origins of this delicious sweet treat are Italian and the story goes that nougat goes 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.
