Why was the cannelé born in Bordeaux?
According to legend, the cannelé was invented over the 18th century, by the nuns of the Sainte-Eulalie’ church, in Bordeaux (just a few steps away from the historic shop Labo&Gato). And at that time, the cannelé was known as « canelas » or « canelons ».
But why was the cannelé born in Bordeaux? Because back in those days, the port of Bordeaux was an ideal trade route with remote islands. Trade in sugar, rum and vanilla, essential ingredients for the preparation of cannelé, was abundant.
The origin of the cannelé would be related to win. Indeed, during the vinification, winemakers were used to whip egg whites as fining agents. The staff of the Châteaux was then in charge of separating the eff whites from the yolks, and the unused yolks were given to the Little Sisters of the Poor, who were using them to prepare the cannelés.
Back into fashion during the 80s, the cannelé is now one of the flagship products of Bordeaux, just like the wine.
The authentic tinned copper mold is ideal to bake cannelés. Because it absorbs and conducts heat better, the cannelés are crusty and caramelized on the outside, and soft on the inside.
Labo&Gato was born in 2011 from the will of two brothers to make the world of pastry accessible. Damien is trained cook and officiated several years in restaurant pastry, Lucas is from the middle of the food and cultivates a real passion for food science.
Their idea is simple: provide both personal and professional equipment and products for baking, with a work of repackaging to suit everyone.
As pastry is not a case about, Labo&Gato had the idea to propose pastry workshops for all levels to become familiar in usability, with technical and professional products.
The bet is successful and the company is expanding over the years.
