Bonne Maman jam is just about as authentic as can be. With chunks of fruit poking through and plenty of sugar, it’s French jam as has been made for centuries.
As early as the first century, Pliny the Elder described preserving fruit by cooking it in honey, syrup, or wine. Cane sugar is introduced to Europe around the year 1000 by way of the Middle East, and the word “confiture” was born, derived from the Latin for “medicine to lick.” At the time, it described all sweets made of foods cooked in sugar. For centuries, jam was considered a luxury, until beet sugar was discovered in the early 19th century. Now, they’re simply delicious!
Bonne Maman started in 1971 at Biars-sur-Cère, a village in the Lot region known for its plentiful fruit at the junction of the Cère and Dordogne rivers. The jam was so good that it could have been made by a grandmother for her family – hence the name “Bonne Maman,” which is an affectionate name for grandmothers in French. A simple glass jar, a handwritten paper label glued on, and a cap with a red Vichy fabric pattern: this is the way grandmothers used to make jam with all the fruit that ripened in the summer. The recipe is simple: 50% fruit, 50%, and the result is always delicious!
At French Wink, we have a varied selection of classic French jams for you to choose from! Will you spread black cherry, chestnut, quince, mandarine, rhubarb, strawberry & wild strawberry, or golden plum (mirabelle) on your toast in the morning? If you have a sweet tooth, opt for cherry, plum, or strawberry. For a jam with a little more bite, try rhubarb, quince, or mandarine. Chestnut jam is gentler thanks to its nutty flavor.

Alsatian Baking Powder - Alsa
Ready to bake a cake like the French? Grab one of the famous pink pouches of Alsa baking powder, known in France as levure chimique or levure alsacienne.
Unlike most American brands, Alsa is single-acting, which means that it creates the gas needed for leavening as soon as it is mixed with liquid ingredients. The double-acting powders that are common in the U.S. release gas in two stages: first when mixed with liquid ingredients, and then when heated.
Alsa was created in 1897 by Emile Moench, a young French baker who travelled to Vienna for his apprenticeship. He was surprised to discover that his employer used chemical yeast rather than traditional baking yeast for his cakes. At the time, baking powder was still being developed and refined: the German August Oetker invented it in 1891. Upon Emile’s return to France, he began to make the chemical yeast himself. At the time, the village priest took care of the marketing and distribution! Emile’s wife dreamt of an Alsacian woman in a traditional headdress, which spurred the creation of the logo and pink packaging for which Alsa is still known today. The company grew quickly, and soon Alsa was producing all manner of baking ingredients. Emile even published a collection of baking recipes, and became the first cookbook editor before World War I. After World War II, Alsa establishes itself throughout France as the top producer of baking ingredients. The company wins over hearts and minds with its simple, straightforward recipes. This reputation continues today. In fact, a little pink pouch is sold every three seconds!
Want to use Alsatian Baking Powder at home? You have lots of options of delicious recipes to make. Try a marble cake, madeleines, Breton biscuits, or light and sweet homemade fried dough. Savory recipes are an option too: Alsa pouches are great for homemade pizza dough or tortillas. If you have a waffle machine, use Alsatian Baking Powder to make your waffles fluffy and delicious.
Sold in packs of 8 pouches of 11 grams each. This is roughly equivalent to one tablespoon of baking powder.
