We are a family business.
Mother and son, Lianne and Nicholas Scher, combine traditional Cordon Bleu training, culinary expertise and genuine cooking creativity together with the passion for creating a unique brand that is the 1701 experience.
Our 1701 Copper Kitchen is the nucleus of our family home, and the very source of our handmade 1701 Honey Nougat and range of enthralling 1701 Luxury Hampers.
Making good nougat is an art.
We came upon a very old French nougat recipe and after experimenting with temperatures, textures and ingredients we perfected our 1701 Honey Nougat.
We use our family's own solid copper pots from E.Dehillerin in Paris, in which honey, glucose and sugar are gently heated to create our secret syrup. We pour the hot syrup, at a precise temperature, into beaten free range egg whites and fold in either roasted macadamia nuts or almonds.
The hot mixture is then poured into trays and allowed to gently cool before being hand cut and individually wrapped.
Our packaging is an expression of the sophistication and quality of our products.
We bought and enjoyed nougat in Paris, London, New York and Amsterdam, non of which was ever as delicious as 1701 Honey Nougat!
A 1701 Luxury Hamper is out of the ordinary and will create a reaction! A gift of a 1701 Luxury Hamper is both a pleasure to give and a delight to receive.
We combine 1701 Honey Nougat with our carefully selected array of sophisticated gifts. Each 1701 Luxury Hamper is presented in our signature gift box and can be delivered to your door.
