Sicilian in origin, this pretty confection was inspired by our colleague Lydia, who prepares nougat every year based on an old family recipe. Our version is a tribute to pistachios, whose delicate flavour works wonderfully in all manner of sweet treats. A lot of commercially made nougats have a powdery texture; we tested our recipe until we achieved the perfect balance—not too dry, not too sticky. Irresistible!
