DIANE DE POYTIERS CHESTNUT NOUGAT

£4.95

In 1920, Charlotte & Antonin Chambonnière, fervent of history, founded the “Nougat Diane de Poytiers” factory. Duchess of the Dauphinois in the 16th century, Diane de Poytiers, was, according to the legend one of the nougat ambassadors. A street and a house from the 16th century still bears her name to this day in the city center of Montélimar. Thinking that she would be a beautiful face for their future nougat factory, Charlotte and Antonin decided to use her name. Thus begins this family story of nougat craftsman in Montélimar, who has endured for three generations.

Today Charlotte's grandson, Frédéric Chambonnière, and his team carry on the tradition. They produce 75 tonnes each year of nougat. Its motto is to favour the use of local products and like honey and almonds to better control the quality of raw materials

A delicious blend of honey, chestnut cream, pistachios and almonds, an authentic flavour for this original recipe. The smokiness of the chestnut cream compliments the sweetness of honey, a real unique treat!
