une douceur de provence - sweets from provence

 Boîte de calissons miniature de Betty Sartorio. - A miniature box of calissons by Betty Sartorio.

Dans ma famille nous aimons beaucoup les calissons, ces losanges au goût de Provence. J'étais très heureuse d'en trouver en miniature.

In my family we love calissons, these diamond-shaped sweets from Provence. They are made of sugar, almond and melon powder on a sheet of unleavened bread with glazing on top. They are a speciality from Aix-en -Provence since the 15th century. I was delighted to find them in miniature.

This is a wonderful little treasure. I have seen more of Betty Sartorio's work and it is lovely, she usually sells at SIMP in Paris each year.


I shall look forward to the photos of your home town...a great idea, thank you!
