We are a family business that creates delicious treats using the recipes and the know how of every generation. We only use the best ingredients, our baked goods are a delicious blend of decadence and refinement. Every step of the way, a family member ensures quality, respect of the tradition and guarantees the amount of love put in every single bite.
Our story goes back to 1975, when our mom’s family traveled to Cannes, France, to escape war-torn Lebanon. Our mom (Grace) was used to watch her mother bake cakes, cookies and Middle Eastern sweets; while in southern France, she had the opportunity to taste new desserts and it was the beginning of a love story with French sweets and baking! When heading back to Beirut in 1977, she had many recipes in her notebook!
In the early ’90s, our family moved to Canada. Being a food conscientious parent, our mom always paid attention to ingredients when doing groceries; she found it difficult to find healthy ingredients when it came to sweet snacks. Either too much sugar or bad ingredients spanning across many lines.
Grace’s solution: rekindle with her passion on a more practical basis and bake cookies for school!
Her famous notebook had always some recipe ready to cater to our biggest sweets cravings and she didn’t lack imagination too for creating seasonal cookies. Once we graduated, our mom gradually stopped baking cookies…
With a little curiosity on our part, and as her mother did before, she started teaching us the art of baking. In this process, she not only shared her recipes (and secrets!) but also transmitted her love of baking sweets and cookies to us!
In early 2015, the idea of sharing Grace’s cookies started to develop and both siblings founded La Biscuitery with one objective in mind: Share with the world the wonderful childhood memories of baking pastries with the family.
