Food is art, food is passion and primarily a necessity. Every culture can be characterized by its traditional cuisine. In every dish we make, we put a little piece of our own creativity and uniqueness.
As every art, food has its ups and downs, its popular 'creations' and only a few masterpieces. Today we offer you one of these delicious masterpieces. It is sweet, it is tasty and, as you have probably suggested, it is French. In fact, what most people don't know is that there different types of Nougat.

The most popular one is the white one, which is a widely spread dessert in Northern France. The black nougat, on the other hand, is believed to be a connoisseur product. A very delicious recipe with nougat are the so-called chocolate-dipped nougat bites. It is quite a simple to prepare recipe, since the only thing you need to do is simply dipping nougat in some kind of chocolate – white, plain or milk. It is really tasty.

What are we going to offer you today is one not-so famous but really delicious recipe, which you can use to surprise your beloved one or impress your friends on the Christmas party. It is really easy, it will not cost you neither efforts, nor much time and the result will be gorgeous. Me personally, took the challenge a few weeks ago and decided to prepare it.

The occasion was my third anniversary with my husband and I really wanted to impress him (which is always very hard, since he is a professional chief). So, in order not to get into an embarrassing situation, I made a chocolate cake in case my French dessert fails. Well, I will save you the details around the whole evening, but at the end my chocolate cake remained in the fridge and neither me, nor my husband thought of it for days. So here is this great recipe from Northern France, enjoy it!


  • 12 eggs
  • 2 soup spoons of sugar;
  • 1 jar of jam of whole, green figs (strawberries or cherries are also a good idea );
  • 1 spoon of confectionery cream;
  • Caramelized walnuts

How To Prepare?

Take the yolks and the sugar, mix and then beat them up. In another containers beat up the cream and the whites (again separated from one another). Mix everything and at the end add the whites while carefully stirring with an wooden spoon. Cut the whole figs into small pieces and add them to the mixture along with the walnuts. If you don't have any figs (or you just don't like eating them), you can change the recipe and replace them with some pieces of kiwi. After that you put the composite into an appropriate container and place it in the fridge. When it is ready, put the desert (just the container) into some tepid water, then cut it into pieces and serve. You can decorate with some fruit, walnuts and caramel.

Bon Appetit!
