The general Biscuit Company settled in Montmartre
Farming village in the middle of rich farmland until the early nineteenth century, Montmartre was transformed into place of festivals where artists and bourgeois were slumming. To find the artisan spirit of the Buttes, Gilles Marchal created the General Biscuit Company and decided to make it a showcase for the lamination. This particularly demanding technique combines the simplicity of the best products to a particular know-how to get delicate golden leaves and light, like the skirts of cancan dancers. Made with flour mills from the best Ile-de-France crafts, fresh butter and water, cookies are prepared and cooked several times a day under the eyes of gourmets. His compositions pay tribute to the beautiful ones which made the success of Montmartre Jean Avril, Nini Patte en l’air, Cha U Kao and La Goulue.
