The French are renown for accidental elegance, which seems to happen every time they whip out some croissants, macarons and something sparkling. Now you can simulate this delicate soiree with this month’s French Foodie Finds!
Oui love them! And, we love that they come in variety packs with something for everyone. Incredibly delicate, light and airy, these macarons are crafted with the traditional jam filling rather than contemporary cream, giving them a pronounced flavor profile than most. Did we mention how pretty they are arranged on a simple plate? Delightful and decadent entertaining!
Our croissants are of essential European style. All butter, our classic French dough is layered with butter, rolled and folded several times to make the ultimate flaky croissant. Of course, it goes without saying that our croissants are always fresh. How? Because we bake them in our stores throughout the day. Available in large butter, petite butter or large multigrain.
A century of tradition, a splash of water and bubbles, a few grams of sugar, fresh lemons and a bold imagination; that‘s what Victor Geyer called upon when he crafted his first luxurious libation in Munster, France in1895. From the pure water coming out of the Vosges Spring next to his house to the beet sugar in Erstein and lemons from the city of Grasse, local ingredients are the heart of Lorina Artisanal Sparkling Beverages.
Made from time-honored, traditional recipes with the finest quality fruit and 100% all-natural ingredients, Bonne Maman preserves and jellies are all crafted with ingredients that could easily be found in your Grandmother’s kitchen. Free from artificial coloring, high fructose corn syrup and preservatives, they add natural sophistication to toast and a sweet delectability to simple biscuits.
The story of these lovely French cakes began with Stanislaus 1st King of Poland. Legend has it that lacking a pastry chef, he asked a servant girl for dessert. The king enjoyed the girl’s little cake so much that he named it after her: Madeleine. Now a traditional French delight, these delicate sponge cakes are still crafted without coloring, palm oil or hydrogenated fat and imported from France, where they reign.
