The recipe of calisson, Provence's almond-shaped signature confectionery, dates back to the 15th century. This delicious specialty is made of candied fruit (mainly melon and orange) and ground almonds topped with a thin layer of white icing. Its taste is not unlike marzipan, with a fruitier flavor.
Confectioner Maffren was founded by Daniel Maffren in the Provençal village Le Poët in 1945. It is is renowned for its fine nougats and calissons.
