Madeleines History

Madeleines, little shell-shaped cookies baked in special molds, were made famous by the French writer Marcel Proust in his seven-volume novel, "Remembrance of things past (À la recherche du temps perdu)"

                    The middle-aged narrator is drinking a cup of tea into which he has dipped a Madeleine when suddenly he is flooded with memories of his boyhood holidays in the village of Combray. 

 Because of "Remembrance of things past (À la recherche du temps perdu)" Madeleines have become one of the most famous foods in all literature.

Madeleines were invented in the little town of Commercy in the province of Lorraine in North-Eastern France by Madeleine Paumier.

They are a great favorite with French children.
