A box of 6 strawberry and basil calissons
Calisson are one of the traditional 13 desserts of Provence at Christmas time. This centuries old confectionery is made from finely ground sweet almonds, candied Provencal melon and orange peel laid on a thin wafer and topped with royal icing.
In this variety the Mara des Bois strawberry, a very tasty strawberry, brings fruity and woody notes to the calisson; The light acidity of the fruit then comes on the palate, enhanced by the freshness and green notes of basil.
