For thousands of years mankind has been enamored by the singularly delightful qualities of the almond. Originating in the Middle East along the Mediterranean coast, it has been a mainstay of some of our most famous ancient civilizations. The Pharoahs of Egypt flavored their bread with almond oils, and Cleopatra was so taken with it that she is rumored to have bathed in almond milk.
Its popularity, as well as its seeds, spread to Italy and Spain in the 1500s and quickly became a central element in both cultures' culinary traditions. Finally making its way to the New World with the conquistadors, heavily perfumed almond orchards now dot the fields of California as well.
