Djaouzia (white nougat) - Food Find

I was recently introduced to this fabulous soft white nougat - Djaouzia.  Called "La Ruche" it's made in Algeria by Dar Kasentina.  You can't buy it in the UK but anyone visiting Algeria should look out for it to bring back as a gift.  Made in traditional copper pans from honey and top quality walnuts, this artisan product is packaged in beautiful boxes hand-painted by students from the Algerian School of Fine Arts.
