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.
