It all began in the mysterious souks of Marrakesh. As Sally, a renowned South African chef, wound her way through the maze of narrow alleys, she found herself unable to resist the mounds of flavoured nougat on offer. Upon her return, Sally was inspired to master the art of creating exceptional nougat, finally creating what has become the Sally Williams we all know and love today.
