Our macaroons are largely made with whole almonds. They are cleaned and prepared, then left to rest several hours before they are mixed in with the ingredients. We have used the same recipes since 1889.
Besides basic ingredients, always of the top quality from local producers, it is the home-made manufacturing and the traditional cooking methods that allows our macaroons to acquire the softness that the gourmets like. The paste of macaroons is always mixed according to a special process and the macaroons are then piped on to a backing sheet with a piping bag. By cooking in a traditional oven , the macaroons acquire a beautiful golden colour and softness ; true trademark that makes them irresistible.
Our macaroons have been the jewel-in-the-crown of our house since its creation. Originally, our great grandfather had based his business on only one variety of macaroons: the macaroons “nature”. Our father began his diversification by creating the macaroon “cognaçais”, which is no other than a macaroon made with grapes that have been marinated in a syrup containing cognac. We made the choice to further diversitfy by creating more than 40 different varieties of macaroons. By preserving the recipe and the original manufacturing methods, we have combined various ingredients and flavours to charm and entice our customers.
Thus, we propose a range of:
- macaroons with fruits: macaroons with strwaberry, macaroons with orange, macaroons with tangerine … and our creation of last winter the macaroon with fig
- macaroons with dry fruits: macaroons with pistachio, macaroons with sesame, macaroons with hazel nut, macaroons with poppy….
- macaroons with “flavours”: macaroons coffee, macaroons chocolate, macaroons with honey .....
- alcoholic macaroons: macaroons Rum Banana and in reference to our area of origin, macaroons with Cognac (Cognaçais)….
