Description
 
Marzipan has its origins in the Orient, where the fine almond-sugar delicacy was served at the caliph's table to crown the meal.
The sweet specialties were introduced to Europe during the Crusades via the trading center of Venice, making its way to Spain, Portugal and Germany. At the beginning of its history, marzipan was produced by chemists and considered a healing remedy well into the 18th century.

In the 14th century, marzipan became a dessert on the noblest dinner tables and it served as a luxury gift for the empire’s highest dignitaries. Following the discovery of the New World and the worldwide cultivation of sugar cane, Europe benefited from easier access to sugar than ever before. As a result, confectioners took over the production of marzipan and magically transformed the once plain marzipan loaves into works of art by creating hand-modelled figurines.

More industrialised methods of processing brought marzipan production into full bloom
