Historical Background of the Almond Paste Manufactury
Known as an almond paste manufacturer, Arslanzade begins its adventure with almond paste. Under the conditions of that time, it was made with almonds, sugar, water, and lemon pounded in wooden mortars and this dessert has come in the hands of masters without changing its taste and flavour until today. Almond paste, one of the refined flavours of the Ottoman cuisine and requiring completely manual labour and mastery, is also used in many traditional desserts, cookies, and halva.
The travellers who tasted this flavour in Edirne and took it to Europe, also pioneered it to spread and be loved under the name “marzipan”. Arif Meriç is the founder who pioneered the traditional marzipan taste as “Arslanzade”. During the sale of confectionery and delicatessen product groups that he started in 1974, he registered the name of his great grandfather “Arslanzade” known as Kadı in the Ottoman Period and took the first step in bringing the brand to today.
