The history of Maison Roux, and the Provençal and Languedoc macaroon
Maison Roux was created to bring a traditional biscuit up to date, grounded in the values of authenticity ...
Maison Roux is an artisanal manufacturing atelier specialized in baking macaroon biscuits true to the authentic recipe served at the tables of the Counts of Provence and Languedoc in the early Middle Ages. The traditional macaroon is a soft almond based cookie. In the original recipe, there is no ganache or cream.
"A thousand-year-old cookie"
Originally from the Mediterranean basin, the cradle of almond trees, the macaroon has gradually spread across France since the early Middle Ages. It can be found today across France with variations according to terroirs and regional cultures. Inspired by the past, "Maison Roux" brings the Provençal macaron or Languedoc macaron, up to date. Traditionally, due to hot and dry summers in Mediterranean countries, people used to place the 2 shells against each other to keep the biscuit moist for longer.
Passionate about taste, we use natural raw materials that we select rigorously ...
"Enjoy as part of a healthy and balanced diet ..."
Authentic flavors come through as we use a minimum amount of ingredients to make our macaroons and other specialities. To ensure that each flavor is fully expressed, we sweeten our recipes to a mimum, and do not use preservatives. All our suppliers are certified organic and fair-trade. Whenever possible, we work with local suppliers (eg: Chestnuts from the Cévennes, Fleur de sel from Camargue, etc.).
"An ethical and responsible approach promoting solidarity and zero waste"
Our macaroons are mainly sold in bulk directly, in organic stores and in bulk grocery stores. Our workshop is open to all. It is possible to watch the manufacturing process through a large bay window overlooking our laboratory.
