Confisserie Léonard Parli
Confisserie Léonard Parli information
Aix’s sweetest treat since King René’s wedding banquet in 1473 is the marzipan-like local speciality, calisson d’Aix , a small, diamond-shaped, chewy delicacy made on a wafer base with ground almonds and fruit syrup, glazed with icing sugar. Traditional calissonniers like Confisserie Léonard Parli still make them. This confisserie also offers free guided tours at its onsite factory; call ahead for details.
