Francis Miot House

Les Coucougnettes

Grilled almonds covered in 70% cocoa dark chocolate, hand-rolled in a raspberry flavored almond paste, with ginger and Armagnac. Our Coucougnettes are artisanal confections made in Pau, created by Francis Miot and SG Sender (“Monsieur Pâtissier” from Gaston Lenôtre”). A specialty of Pau, they were created to honor King Henri IV, to whom historians attribute to having 57 mistresses and 24 children. The name “Coucougnette” comes from the word “coucougne,” which signifies a caress, cuddle, embrace… in short, a “moment of love.” The Coucougnettes are thus a gourmet and mischievous homage to the good king, Henri IV, nicknamed the “Vert Galant.”
