This Nougat from Delices and gourmandises looks yummy to me. I got the recipe and I will prepare it when I have frr time. I want to know how it is compared to internationally acclaimed Nougat de Montelimar.

Come on guys, you should know that delices & gourmandises recipes and products are principally made for elderly people. So that's not weird to try and cook homemade chocolate or nougat by yourself, not as a grandfather or grandmother.

It can be a funny recipe if you succeed but can be also pretty annoying if you failed. I agree with Weiss, I guess it's better to order some from delices and gourmandises directly.

These nougats are my mother specialties! She did this Delices and Gourmandises’ recipe for my children during our last visit and they really appreciated! Even my husband wanted more! My mother is a very good cook! However, my father prefers to order some treats for my kids at Delices and Gourmandises as he likes to spoil them!

Wait, cooking nougats seems not funny at all, I'd better order the package than cook it myself, I don't see the point. It's like making homemade chocolates that doesn't make sense to me, nobody does that. Delices and Gourmandises has some weird recipes sometimes.
