Callebaut chef Alexandre Bourdeaux took a close look at what makes the classic nougat so delicious and gave the highly popular sweet treat a spicy upgrade. The Salted Caramel Crispearls™, and delicately roasted pistachios and almonds in his recipe give the chewy delight some pleasantly crunchy accents and a whole new flavour dimension. But the real protagonist in this flavour story is the ginger that turns this nougat into a classic with a surprising twist.
