History of macaroons Is it a coincidence that a gourmet writer by the name of François Rabelais was the first to mention the macaroon? It was in 1552 in the Quart Livre that he described it as a “Small round cake with almonds”. Introduced by Catherine de Médicis’ chefs, the delicacy’s origins are Mediterranean, probably from the Andalusia region of Spain before the expulsion of the Jews in 1492, as during the eight days of Passover, food eaten had to be flourless and unleavened. The macaroon was therefore the perfect answer to these restrictions. The origins of its name vary from Greek – “cake ..read more

The egg, the universal symbol of life and renewal, was at the heart of these traditions, and was often offered in its natural form or painted, long before it was turned into sweet treats.

Diverse and rich in meaning, these recipes tell the story of the communities, their beliefs and their lands, thus weaving the thread of a gastronomic history that heralds the chocolate celebrations of today.

The first Europeans to taste vanilla were Cortes and his soldiers when they were received by Emperor Montezuma and offered an unsweetened cocoa drink, to which the Aztecs added tlilxot chitl, the ‘black pod’, to reduce the bitterness. Columbus brought the pod back to Spain in 1518 and Spaniards, enthused by the new aroma, gave it a ‘christian’ name, meaning a latin name: Bainilla, which is a diminutive of Vaina, a ‘sheath’. Variations of this have prevailed ever since, and the etymological adventure has had the pod lose its colour. France got to know vanilla thanks to Briti ..read more
