In tribute to Marcel Proust, an original box of 16 tasty madeleines 8 / dark chocolate – 8 / chocolate milk.
The little story: this box was created in 1922 as a tribute to Marcel Proust, one of DEBAUVE & GALLAIS ‘most loyal customers. In “Le Side de chez Swann”, the famous writer studies what you feel when you taste a real delicacy. This dish was not a chocolate, as everyone knows, but a madeleine, a kind of sweet cake that perfectly accompanies black tea. This gives the idea to DEBAUVE & GALLAIS to make a “Madeleine” chocolate composed of two shells molded above and then filled with praline and pasted on top of one another. These chocolates being smaller than madeleines, they were naturally called Les Petites Madeleines.
