The navette is a Provencal bicuit symbolized by the boat that brought Marie Jacobé, Marie Salomé and Sara from Palestine to the coasts of Provence. The village of Saintes-Maries de la Mer in Camargue was named after these three saints.
To recall this story, Mr Aveyrous, in 1781, came up with the idea of making a biscuit int he shape of a boat.
The biscuits were traditionally bought by the dozen for good luck throughout the twelve months of the year.
We would like to thank Pierre Hermé for revisiting this traditional recipe for us.
