Eleonore has loved baking since childhood. After graduating from a Parisian catering school she managed a restaurant for 5 years and then launched L'Atelier d'Eléonore in 2013.
Her macaroons were awarded the prestigious title of Best Macaroon in the Hérault in 2021 (Chambre des Métiers de l'Hérault). She attributes her success in large part to her fresh and selected ingredients.
From seasonal fruits to caramel and chocolate - there's something for everyone
Local, delicately flavored traditional French biscuits
Eleonore's macaroons are the result of long, painstaking trials. They are handmade in a professional kitchen in Montpellier, using fresh, selected ingredients.
She uses a 'French' meringue base which is lighter and less sweet than the Italian meringue found in most macaroons on the market.
All her ingredients come from France.
A list of sweet and savoury macaroons can be found here. They are all gluten-free and some are milk protein-free (look for the astericks on the list).
Aprons to the ready - an excellent idea for the whole family, a hen party, birthday or anniversary gift!

“I didn't like macarons until I tried these! I recommend all of them, but my favourites are the salted butter caramel and fruit ones (she puts a piece of fruit in each).”
