FACTORY & MUSEUM OF CALISSON
The calisson is recognized as part of the heritage of the city of Aix. Whether you’re a connoisseur or not, you can learn more about the authentic flavours of the calisson by visiting the fascinating sites of the Confiserie du Roy René.
THE AMANDE DE PROVENCE
The rehabilitation of Provençal almond is today the battle horse of the Confiserie du Roy René. Under the impetus of Olivier Baussan and Laure Pierrisnard, a major campaign to encourage the planting of almond trees has been launched.
Melon is the predominant fruit in this recipe (95% of the candied fruit), and is grown exclusively in Cavaillon, Provence. Naturally sweet, it contributes to the final texture of the calisson. The melon is then candied in Apt – the world capital of candied fruit since the 14th century.
