La Fabrique

La Fabrique sailing team, Alan Roura

La Fabrique is the new brand from the family-owned company Cornu SA. The idea of the “La Fabrique” brand originated from the creation of the building of the same name at the company's HQ in Champagne (Switzerland). The complex includes a bakery shop, an interactive museum, a pastry workshop and a “bistronomic” restaurant. In 2017, La Fabrique opened its second complex in Fontain (France), home to a bakery shop and a café. La Fabrique blends quality and authenticity with perfect harmony making it the highest quality snack worldwide.

Marc-André Cornu is a master baker and has learned a lot from both his Swiss and foreign experiences. Cornu SA has produced, since its foundation in 1934 by André Cornu, Marc-André's grandfather, the finest puff pastry products as well as other fine bakery products.

Marc-André is proud to say that in the profession, they have remained passionate craftsmen, in constant pursuit of excellence. Since André started in 1934, they have automated a lot, but never industrialized. In 2016 Marc-André Cornu, the appointed king of fine bakery and breadsticks/bread twists, inaugurated the new factory building in the village of Champagne (Switzerland), that includes a bakery shop, a pastry workshop and a “bistronomic” restaurant, and an interactive museum dedicated to the secrets of artisanal bakery.

History of the Pretzel

The many anecdotes about the origin of the pretzel is witness to its popularity and the infatuation it arouses. The shape of the pretzel undoubtedly evokes "crossed arms". Hence the first legend perpetuated until today:

First legend: In the year 610, a monk inspired by the folded arms of his classmates at the time of prayer, would have worked leftover dough in the shape of crossed arms.

Second legend: The following story, however, is better known: in 1477, a baker of the king's court would have cooked his bread so badly that he was thrown into the dungeon. For such a crime, the verdict was public execution. But the baker was allowed to escape the sentence if he invented, within three days, a loaf "through which the sun would shine three times". The baker then imagined what is known in the profession as a "decorated bread", that is to say handmade without mold. Crossing the two ends of a dough ribbon, he formed three holes - and thus saved his head!

The brine that covers the pretzel was also born in a fortuitous way: asleep near the hot oven, the baker's cat would have knocked over a plate containing the pretzels that were to be put in the oven. They would have landed in a basin filled with boiling brine, actually prepared to season dishes. There was no time for the baker to remake the dough, so he decided to bake the pretzels covered with brine.

Third legend: One day a king's minister was having breakfast in an inn. The pretzels that were served to him had a very different taste from the sweet pretzels of the carnival because the baker would have mistaken bowls and instead of coating his pretzels with a sugar icing, he would have smeared with a solution of baking soda, normally used to clean the oven plates!

Fourth legend: In the 17th century, the interlocking loops of the pretzel became the symbol of undying love. The legend has it that in 1614 in Switzerland which happens to be the country of origin of masterbaker André Cornu, royal couples would have used a pretzel in their wedding ceremonies in order to seal the bond of matrimony, and that this custom could have been the origin of the sentence "tying the knot".

- La Fabrique: Owned by the Cornu family from Switzerland, it traces its roots back to 1934 and is now the market leader in snacks for aperitif and cocktail. The Cornu family has been cultivating the art of traditional bakery for three generations, and strives to provide consumers with products that are beyond reproach in quality and taste.

 

- La Semeuse: Founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1900, LA SEMEUSE takes great care to preserve the aroma and flavour of its coffees. The green coffee beans are selected according to very strict criteria and roasted using a secret ancient process handed down through many generations. Because the roasting process takes place at an altitude of 1000 m, a lower roasting temperature can be used, which results in less damage to the coffee beans and allows their exquisite aroma and flavour to be fully developed.
