In France, the typical almond nougat of Montélimar originated after Olivier de Serres planted the first almond trees in the Ardèche-region. The origins of nougat though, are much older, since historical traces were found in the Byzantine Empire (from Late Antiquity to the Middle Ages).
Today there are many varieties of nougat to be found worldwide. Often produced by the descendants of Spanish and Italian families whom emigrated and introduced their family-recipes in the new country where they settled.
