One of the oldest sweets made in Estonia already in the medieval times is marzipan – a sweet made of almonds and powdered sugar. Old Hanseatic towns Reval (now Tallinn) and Lübeck are both convinced that the honor of inventing marzipan belongs to their town.
Nobody remembers the absolute truth about the origin of marzipan, but this does not diminish the value of it for those having a sweet tooth. Marzipan, which was considered as a medicine, was first made in Estonian pharmacies, more precisely in the oldest constantly operating pharmacy in Europe – Tallinn Town Hall Apothecary. This pharmacy was first mentioned in written sources in 1422. Today marzipan is considered a healthy and nourishing sweet and it is manufactured in a Tallinn confectionery factory.
This workshop will take 30-60 minutes - a minimum of 5 people is required (groups can vary from 5 to 15 people).
