Today a national landmark, the berlingot was created almost 800 years ago, by the pastry chef of Pope Clement V! The paste is cooked in copper cauldrons before being worked by hand (usually on a marble table). This gives to the berlingot its unique consistency once it cools down.
About Traditions de France: In 1932, Fernande Lagarrigue opened a grocery store in Rieuxpeyroux (South of France) to sell culinary French specialties. Few years later, she opened another store in Grasse (French Riviera) to sell perfumes and products made of Lavender. This passion for French artisanal specialties was passed along generations, and today her grandson Julien Baillet, together with his childhood friend Romain Guillaume, run the company and keep spreading the French “Art de Vivre” all over the world!
