As if the French don’t already do enough amazing stuff with food, they also excel at the confectionary arts. The Brittany region of France has become known for its caramels.
These soft, buttery caramels are a perfect sweet treat with a little bite of sea salt. That perfect balance starts with the best ingredients. The Brittany region is known for its dairy production and that fresh milk is one of the key components in these caramels. Combined with fresh butter, creme fraiche, and Guerande salt, local confectioners heat and mold the local dairy into delicate treats that have become world-renowned.
It seems like everyone in France has their favorite caramel maker or confectionary shop. La Maison d’Armorine is about to become your favorite. Started in 1946 by Yvonne and Raymond Audebert, the Quiberon confectionery soon garnered a loyal following. Three generations in and they have maintained that following by continuing to produce gourmet treats that stay true to their heritage.
