Calisson is the famous French cookie of Aix en Provence, and it is one of my favorite treats when we travel there. Unique to the region, many sweets shops are decorated with beautiful, colorful bins of delicious Calissons. To truly be called a Calisson d’Aix, it must have very specific ingredients sourced almost all locally. So, learning how to make these special, unique treats is a wonderful experience for families, and there is no better place to make it than during a private lesson at the famous Calisson-maker Roy René in the heart of Aix-en-Provence.
