Nougats: Discover a wide range of classic and modern creations

In Spain, nougat (turron) is eaten all year round, but is especially popular during the festive season. In this online course, creative pastry chef David Gil, will show you the techniques you need to make classic nougat and more modern interpretations.

If you have visited Spain, you may already be familiar with classics, such as ‘Jijona’ (a soft turron made with honey and nuts), ‘guirlache’ (a hard turron made with almonds and caramel), and ‘yema’ (with a layer of caramelized egg yolk).

The world of ‘turrones’ reaches beyond the traditional sugar, egg white and nut creations that are most commonly associated with nougat. In this course you will find recipes that also feature chocolate ganache, gianduja, fruit pastes, and more.

The best "torrone" as we call in Italy

Massimo
Not for making turrón at home

For the Turrón de Jijona, you need to have turrón de jijona? That makes no sense at all. It defeats the purpose of making it at home. Some lessons seem to be over-edited, and parts are cut out. The music is distracting.

No Subtitles

I love the recipes and thanks Chef David Gil's sharing. BUT there is no Subtitles in Chapter 7, section 6 'Finishing and presentation of the coconut and pineapple turrón' 0:41, I have to imagine what is going on! And also Chapter 7 & Chapter 8, part of the lesson do not have subtitles!!!
