Sweet Spanish Delights
Here at Sabato, we offer so many incredibly indulgent products of Spanish origin, with the confectionery from both Cudié and Torrons Vicens being fine examples of this. While their offerings are vastly different, both of these artisan producers demonstrate incredible innovation whilst strictly adhering to the traditions of their craft. Handmade using the finest ingredients, we look forward to enjoying these delicious Spanish treats each year, though they don't last long in our house!
Cudié is a family business of craftsmen, devoted to producing delicious varieties of chocolate bonbons. The company has continued its customary handmade production for over fifty years, using secret recipes to create delectably moreish sweet treats. Cudié’s famous Catànies are whole caramelised Marcona almonds, smothered with their secret recipe nut praline, and dusted in cocoa. All their new creations maintain the purest essence of the traditional Catànies while adding new nuances and flavours. Their flavour offering includes crème brûlée, green lemon, Himalayan salt, coffee chocolate, dark chocolate and yoghurt. For hazelnut lovers, there is also the Antoni Gaudi-inspired offering of caramelised hazelnuts coated in praline, and dusted with cocoa - amazing!
Torrons Vicens was established in 1775, and generation-after-generation of fine confectioners continue to prepare their artisan turrón (nougat) using long-established techniques. They choose from only the best local hazelnuts and almonds and use only natural ingredients selected especially to create a fine palate of flavour. Vicens create a fabulous abundance of turrón, candies and chocolates, made as always, by hand. In addition to the more traditional turrón, they also create some bold and distinctive products such as their brittle lemon, almond & pistachio nougat and strawberry & pistachio nougat.
