Guirlache turron, the turron of Aragon:
There is the soft turron of Jijona, and the hard turron of Alicante. It’s only fair then to call Guirlarche turron the turron of Aragon.
Although the guirlache is mainly from the regions of Aragon, Catalonia and Valencia, curiously, the name seems to be of French origin. The name comes from the French word “grillage”, referring to the way the almonds are roasted. The name was probably spread by the French in Aragonese territory in the 19th century, during the Napoleonic invasion.
Although there are many variations of the recipe, one of the most influential is that of the Aragonese gastronome Teodoro Bardají, who gave value to this region with his recipe for “Guirlarche de Zaragoza”.
