History of Marzipan
Marzipan is a sweet dated back to the Middle Ages. It came from Persia to Europe in the 13th century.
According to the myth the little daughter of a Venetian confectioner made the first marzipan accidentally around 1400. For fun she mixed honey into the ground almond and put the mass on a hot cooktop. Her father tasted the dry sweet and called out:
"Here is Mary's confectionery invention!"
He called the new sweet marzipan after the patron saint of Venice, Saint Mark, which means: Mark's bread.
The company was established in 1963.
After a huge success in Hungary we decided to expand our business in the UK by distributing the finest selection of hand-made marzipans.
