The origin of 'Le Petit Zeste' - Le petit zeste

The origin of 'Le Petit Zeste'

As agricultural engineers, Eloi and Dominique use only local or French ingredients in order to provide biscuits of the highest possible quality.

“Le petit zest was created when I wanted to show my grandmother I was thinking of her. I wanted to give her an original gift and as I couldn't find a suitable present, I made a custom-made box with cookies, a little note and a photo of her grandchildren. She was delighted, my relatives started ordering them and that's how Le petit zeste was born!”

“I met Dominique at La Foire de Printemps. After tasting a few of the biscuits, we decided on the marguerites which didn't last ten seconds in the car on the way home!”
