In Search of Lost Time

World Famous Pastries

Marcel Proust didn’t only create a masterpiece of the 20th century with his novel, but he made a small, shell-shaped pastry internationally renowned in the first chapter: the Madeleine. The taste of the pastry combined with a sip of lime blossom tea fills the narrator with a never felt before feeling of happiness and brings back memories from his childhood, which from then on pervade him whenever he’s enjoying Madeleines.

«No sooner had the tea mixed with pastry crumbs touched my palate than a shudder ran through me.»
