TOP 3 – SAINT-JEAN- DE- LUZ
1. PREGNANCY CRAVINGS – GASTRONOMY
Save the wine tasting courses for next year and indulge in the many culinary treats in Saint Jean de Luz.
Try Basque Cake and Mouchous at Maison Pariès (9, rue Gambetta,Saint-Jean-De-Luz)
Mouchous = mall, light and soft macaroons. Made with lots of almonds and very little sugar, enveloped in a thin and crunchy outer layer, and prepared in twos, with one on top of the other.
tip : make sure to ask if the macaroons contain uncooked eggs, if so, they are not suitable for pregnant women
Try Kanouga, another specialty produced by Maison Pariès. This special treat was invented around 1914. This soft black chocolate (or coffee) caramel can also be made with walnuts or hazelnuts.
Pâtisserie ADAM (6 rue de la République, Saint-Jean-de-Luz)
In 1660, Monsieur ADAM created the subtle and delicious masterpiece we now know as the macaroon, made from a mixture of almond paste, sugar, ground almonds and egg whites.
During the wedding of Louis XIV to the Infanta of Spain, Monsieur Adam made some of his confections for the new king. Louis found the macaroons delightful, and his approval guaranteed that these delicacies became extremely popular with the Court. The Pâtisserie ADAM still exists in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, with the secrets of its recipe passed down from father to son.
2. LOREAMAR THALASSO & SPA
When you book the Babymoon Offer at Grand Hôtel Thalasso & Spa, Mom to Be is treated to a 50 minutes Prenatal Massage at Loreamar Thalasso & Spa.
