Torrone, otherwise known as Italian nougat, is a confection made from honey, well-whipped egg whites, vanilla, and walnuts or almonds; it's an ancient sweet that requires considerable skill and care to make well.
At a wedding celebration in Cremona, Italy in 1441, a delicious sweet made of nuts, honey and egg whites was featured. It was fashioned in the shape of the famous tower of Cremona known as "Torrione" ... hence the name Torrone.
