Description

And the town of Provins is your destination if you want a taste of this medieval artisanal excellence!

Once the venue of one of the great Champagne Fairs and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Provins is now home to the Le Ruban Rouge bakery, where the pastry chefs uphold the tradition of the “Niflettes” tartlets, a mouth-watering speciality enjoyed in autumn and dating back to the 14th century.

The story goes that on All Saints Day, the cakes were made to console the orphans who came to cry on their parents’ graves, as they were told « Ne flet » (Latin for “Don’t cry”). The tartlets are made from puff pastry filled with a fine custard flavoured with orange blossom water, and are still immensely popular today. However, if you’re not tempted, don’t worry! Le Ruban Rouge creates a whole host of other sweet treats that you’ll find hard to resist!
