Mazet, the real Prasline

Categories : Eating, published on : 10/12/17

Always manufactured according to the original secret recipe created by Clement Jaluzot in 1636, the Mazet Praslines can adorn themselves with the title of the oldest candy made in France. This grilled and caramelised almond coated in a shiny caramel is simply outstanding. In an exceptional setting designed by the Japanese architect Jun Yonekawa, this luxury confectioner helps us to rediscover the wide range of treats that established its reputation. When you walk through the door of 37 rue des Archives, you are immersed in the Gothic atmosphere of the historical shop of Montargis. The warm wood panelling of stained oak, the carefully reproduced cement tiles, the stained glass held in a fine lead tracery, all is as it should be. Behind the counters, the collection of Praslines, enriched every year with a new recipe, are temptingly displayed. When a family business continues for 3 generations of traditions and expertise, it attaches great significance to the correct and precise creation. There are also other specialities inspired by the recipe of the Prasline, such as the Mazettes or the Givrettes, toasted caramelized almonds coated with white chocolate and pistachio cream, hazelnut almond caramel and coated in milk chocolate sprinkled with icing sugar. How can you resist? JR.
