This unroasted and unburned yolk nougat is an artisan nougat of a lifetime.
This egg yolk nougat is made by hand in our factory in Jijona with a centuries-old recipe that uses almonds, candied egg yolk and sugar in different proportions. It is one of the oldest nougats and appears in our first nougat catalogs.
This Yema nougat is a traditional nougat from Catalonia . and its origin, according to legend, is that in Jijona a salesman made a mistake when buying the eggs needed to make the typical Jijona and Alicante nougat (where egg whites are used), buying more than twice as many as necessary and, so as not to throw them away, he invented a kind of egg marzipan that resulted in this nougat. Later, sugar was added and toasting or burning began, thus giving rise to Catalan cream nougat or toasted yolk nougat.
