Even today La Madeleine still keeps the striped shape that reminds us of the scallop shell.

Its soft heart, delicious flavorful and light texture makes La Madeleine a special moment in French gastronomy.

La Madeleine delicately accompanies a hot drink in which we like to dip it; a moment made famous by Marcel Proust in his novel “Du côté de chez Swan”.

Of course, our Madeleines come from Commercy for which they have made its reputation since the eighteenth century.

NB: La Madeleine is a delicate product that must be eaten fresh, within three weeks.

The origin of the madeleine goes back to the middle age when a pastry chef, whose shop was on the path taken by the pilgrims on their way to Saint Jacques de Compostelle, had the idea of baking delicious little cakes in scallop shells.

Again, we find them mentioned in the seventeenth century as a specialty of the Cardinal de Retz’s cook.

Finally, the most famous Madeleines, in every sense of the word, come from Commercy where, in 1755, a young cook served them to the court of Stanislas Leszczynski, the father-in-law of the King of France Louis XV.

Finding these little cakes particularly exquisite, he gave them the name of the cook: Madeleine Paulmier.
