The navette is a Provencal biscuit in the shape of the boat that brought Marie Jacobé, Marie Salomé and Sara from Palestine to the coasts of Provence. The village of Saintes-Maries de la Mer in Camargue was named after these three saints.
Mr Aveyrous was the one who came up with the idea of making this particular biscuit in 1781 to remember those days.
The biscuits were traditionally bought by dozen for good luck throughout the twelve months of the year.
Our supplier Maison Bremond 1830 thanks Pierre Hermé for having revisited the traditional recipe for them. They are made with organic flour, naturally low in gluten.
These navettes delicately scented with Orange Blossom are to die for!
