Léonard Parli, a Living Heritage Company in Aix-en-Provence, provides magnificent calissons and candied fruits. Léonard Parli has perpetuated the tradition of calissons since 1874 and continues to use granite grind-mills to preserve the taste and the texture of their almonds which make up to 42% of their calissons.
'Calin Soun' (these are hugs), transcribed 'calisson', is said to have been uttered at the wedding of the pretty Jeanne de Laval with almond-shaped eyes, to thank her gallant pastry-chef for having given her those exquisite confectioneries. According to the legend, the young lady, forced to marry Roy René, regained her smile thanks to the calissons.
