First used for its medicinal qualities, Estonian marzipan tradition goes back centuries and there are a number of local legends and tales surrounding the tasty treat. Marzipan is indeed one of the oldest sweets made in Estonia, and while its sugar contents are definitely high, it is believed to have some healing properties.
Maiasmokk Cafe on Pikk Street in Tallinn Old Town is well regarded for its marzipan painting classes, and you can purchase cute marzipan figurines to take with you.
If you happen to spend your Christmas with an Estonian family, then there's a high likelihood that you'll be gifted a pot of honey sourced from a local beekeeper. Honey is widely used to sweeten up life and boost the immune system.
