The why of the how of this amazing project!

Pastry-making is our passion, BIG TIME. Every week, the Banana Farm's kitchen transforms into a gourmet lab for developing tasty new creations. Charlotte, Mathilde and Dorothée work on simple, delicious recipes full of real taste.

Cooking our next shortbreads

To get started, we roll up our sleeves in search of the perfect recipe.
Next, kookies, friends and family gather around the banana tree for a tasting session,
to approve the flavor, texture and chosen ingredients…
Then comes a second torrid tasting with our Banana Farm Open House guests.
Finally, it all comes down to the FATE-FUL verdict: whether or not our creation reaches the highest heights of taste for YOU ;) Next stop, your cupboard or fridge.
