The tradition of excellence since 1896! A family Living Heritage Company very well-known for its distinctive expertise of the ‘Marrons Glacés’
‘Marrons glacés’ glazed-candied chestnuts are very special treats. Corsiglia distinguishes itself by wrapping them up in pairs in a tulle muslin that prevents the fruits from absorbing too much sugar. Thanks to its exclusive vacuum-packaging, you can enjoy fresh ‘marrons glacés’ the whole year! Try also the amazing 'crème de marrons' chestnut spread.
Another Living Heritage Company in Aix-en-Provence which perpetuates the tradition of Calissons since 1874 still using granite grindmills to preserve taste and texture of almonds. 42% of almonds in their calissons!
Calin Soun”(these are hugs), transcribed «calisson », is said to have been uttered at the wedding of the pretty Jeanne de Laval with almond-shaped eyes, to thank her gallant pastry-chef for having given her those exquisite confectioneries. According to the legend, the young lady, forced to marry Roy René regained her smile thanks to the calissons. Enjoy the delicate texture of grounded premium almonds with candied melon and orange peels!
If you want to savour your 'Calisson' like a pro, avoid biting into it. Grasp the little lozenge with two fingers and snap it in two: the sugar should break cleanly after a tiny hesitation.
Both Corsiglia and Léonard Parli offer a very nice selection of candied fruits to enjoy any time of the year: candied, coated with sugar or chocolate, never too sweet!
A dynamic company rewarded many times for its creativity, innovation and expertise.
‘Pruneaux d’Agen’ stuffed plum-prunes are a real delight! Once collected from the tree, the fruits are pitted and filled by hand whether with orange zest, apricot and apple or apple, vanilla and armagnac. They won the Blue Ribbon of Confectionary at the international food contest in Paris in 1995.
