La Maison d’Armorine’s packaging features a retro image of a marmiton, a “chef’s apprentice.” This particular youth helps in the kitchen with the salted butter, cream, sugar, and bain-marie. It’s an allusion to the old0fashioned way these exquisite caramels are still made by La Maison d’Armorine: with fresh Brittany butter and fleur de sel from Guérande. This is classic Brittany caramel: soft, buttery and creamy with a lingering tease of salt.
Why We Like It
Today you will find La Maison d’Armorine’s range in such luminary establishments as Bon Marché in Paris, in Australia, and even China. However, though the business has increased globally, their production and values have not changed. La Maison d’Armorine still has an Audebert (Alain) at the helm. And they still use cane sugar and local ingredients in small batch (50kg) production, with made-to-order freshness, cooked up in copper pots.
