Coucougnettes are artisanal confectionery made in Pau, created by Francis Miot and SG Sender (Gaston Lenôtre's “Monsieur Pâtissier”).< Specialty of Pau, they were designed in honor of King Henri IV, to whom historians attribute 57 mistresses and 24 children. If the name "coucougnette" evokes the things of life, making a "coucougne" means to cuddle, cuddle, pamper ... in two words, to offer a "moment of love".

They therefore pay a greedy and naughty homage to the good King Henri IV nicknamed the "Vert Galant"
Title: these sweets received the Prix du Meilleur Bonbon de France in 2000 *

Emblematic character of the South-West, nicknamed “the Pope of Jam”, he left his mark and his identity at the heart of the House which bears his name and which continues to carry its values of authenticity, creativity and know-how. make.

Cradled from a young age by the authentic cuisine of his grandmother, Francis Miot followed the path of gastronomy until the creation of an anthology of jams, sweets and chocolates with multiple awards.

In 1985, he created the famous jam factory in the South West of France. From the first jams “without added sugar” to the famous Coucougnettes, the Best jam maker in France, triple World Champion of jams , has always put innovation, quality and passion for good products at the heart of its work.

For 30 years, alongside Jean-Bernard Othax, Francis trained his teams and supported them in their desire to surpass yourself to move you. An insatiable creator, he passed on his stubborn desire to innovate in his recipes to both the Confiturerie and Confectionery teams.

In 2005, his meeting with Jean Othax, brother of Jean-Bernard, marked a turning point.

Francis, wishing to withdraw gradually, sells his shares to them and becomes the Consultant of Maison Francis Miot. The 2 brothers, great fruit lovers since their earliest childhood, then guide him towards new areas of culinary expression and in particular towards the conquest of foreign markets. Exceptional meetings with many Michelin-starred chefs thus stimulate his creativity.

Thus was born a great bond between these 3 enthusiasts who will therefore strengthen the DNA of the House : requirement – quality – craftsmanship – creativity.

Since 1995, 18 titles in jams, confectionery and chocolates at the International Confectionery and Chocolate Fair.
