The history of praline's emergence has its origins in France as many culinary products. Here also appear diverse stories. There is a narrative about the duke de Plessis-Praslin, who was preparing for the visit of King Louis XIV. Having the desire to surprise the monarch, he entrusted Clement Jalusot, who was his personal chef, to invent something special. Someone tells about the pastry chef Praline, who invented this delicacy for his master, the Marquis de Plessis-Belliere. Also, there is even a version that the invention of praline happened by chance. According to the story, a slow apprentice played his role, knocking over a bowl of almonds into a vat where sugar was melted.
Perhaps it is not so essential which of these stories is genuinely true. However, it is valuable that nowadays this delicacy fills our imagination with vivid memories of magical aromas. Praline perfectly gives and complements the taste of creams and ice cream, and it is a fabulously delicious filling for chocolate candies.
