The Christmas Market Nougat 2010

Cleaning out my draft posts, I found this unpublished post, drafted in 2010.   I loved watching this very friendly man in the market cutting an enormous nougat.  You definitely needed muscle for this job.

    Well that just makes me smile. 🙂 What a lovely piece of nougat. I’d love to bite into a slice.

  6. I’ve never seen a huge nougat like this (my mouth is watering as I write this LOL) 😀

  7. I’ve never seen anything like this – hard work but delicious results!

    Some of my Irish Italian friends bring quality nougat back from ‘home’ at Christmas. It is delicious. This looks fantastic Rosemary.

    I will do the embarrassing thing and ask – what is nougat? yes I am from the midwest.

    Thats a massive nougat, I wanna have a slice

  11. Now that´s proper nougat!

  12. I remember going through a village called Montelimar when I was a child in the 50’s. All they made in that place was nougat. There was a bas relief, in nougat, of a football match that filled the window of one shop. Might account for the state of my teeth in later life.

  13. Oh yum! But what an effort!

  14. Karen says:

    I’m like everyone else…I have never seen such a large nougat. Thanks for posting the photo.

  15. Oh , this is beautiful…but you are cruel…I want some now.

    Oh wow! I seriously want a piece of that nougat! That man must have some serious arm strength from doing that. I find nougat hard enough to chew most of the time, let alone slice!

  17. It’s beautiful… I’d like to take a slice to the movies for a nibble.
