BISCUITERIE LES MIRLIFLORES

81600 MONTANS - FRANCE
The biscuit factory Les Mirliflores, created in 2017 by Elisa and Gwenaëlle, is located in an old farm in the Tarn.
We have a unique, original and gourmet concept: mixing pastry and French History.
The principle: Offer you biscuits, which we both make by hand from ancient recipes, in order to make you discover delicacies with forgotten flavors, which made the happiness of our ancestors!
A little extra: A booklet is slipped inside each box to make you discover the history of the biscuit and some of its ingredients (which many of us know, such as sugar, cocoa, butter. .. without ever asking us the question of their origin).
The fruit of long research work in various historical, culinary, medicinal and iconographic documents, our products are the result of many hours spent testing and rediscovering pastry through the centuries.
So we have a range of old biscuits:
- The biscuits de la Joie, biscuits from the Middle Ages with cinnamon and almonds;
- The bridaveaux, shortbread with Renaissance violet;
- The macarons, crunchy version, whose recipe dates from the 17th century;
- The massepains au chocolat, a recipe from the 18th century, one of the first cocoa pastries in history;
- The boules de poilus, hazelnut and orange blossom biscuits, which were made during the First World War by certain Poilus families.
This spring 2020, we have created a new range: infusions, teas and preparations for hot chocolates, inspired by past centuries. Like biscuits, there is a small booklet inside the boxes to learn about the history of the drink and some of its ingredients.
- Mélehant, infusion mint / anise / lemon, from the Middle Ages;
- Guillemette, Renaissance hibiscus apple infusion;
- Céleste, pear green tea from the 17th century;
- Auguste, green pineapple coconut tea from the 18th century;
- Preparation for hot chocolate N ° 1, 18th century recipe with cinnamon and Long Java pepper.
Biscuits de la joieLes Mirliflores
The biscuits de la joie are biscuits from the Middle Ages, whose recipe was developed by Hildegarde de Bingen, nun and woman of letters. These biscuits are composed of spices of joy (cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves), spelt flour and almonds provide crunch. Like many recipes at that time, this one was supposed to have medicinal properties thanks to spices and flour.
Auguste, 18th century green tea with pineapple and coconutLes Mirliflores
Auguste is our 18th century green tea, with pineapple and coconut. The pineapple was considered the king of fruits at this time. To find out more about this fruit and tea history, you will find a small booklet slipped into the box! Auguste will go very well with our chocolate marzipans, whose recipe dates from the 18th century.
Mélehant, Herbal tea from the Middle AgesLes Mirliflores
Mélehant is a mint-anise-lemon infusion inspired by the Middle Ages. In the box is a small booklet explaining the history of the infusion and of certain ingredients.
