Montélimar

In the sunny section of the Drôme département known as Drôme Provençale, Montélimar, 46km south of Valence, is an attractive town, with a tree-shaded, grassy promenade lined by cafe terraces carving a C-shape through its centre. The town's biggest claim to fame is its nougat de Montélimar, which took off after WWII when motorists travelling to the French Riviera stopped here to buy the sweeter-than-sweet treat to munch en route.

Authentic Montélimar nougat consists of at least 28% almonds, 25% lavender honey, 2% pistachio nuts, sugar, egg white and vanilla. Texture varies, from dur (hard) to tendre (light and soft), as does honey strength and crispness of the nuts. Some are coated in chocolate and others have fruit, but traditional Montélimar nougat is simply off-white.
