Pâtes de coing


Quince pastes are another enduring tradition of the confectioners of Baume-les-Dames. They have a special shape, like glasses, and tell an unusual story!

In Baume-les-Dames, the abbesses had the rare privilege of owning a crosier, a symbol of authority. Sibilette de Vaire, abbess of Baume-les-Dames in the 14th century, fell out with the bishop. It is said that she was so irritated that she hit him on the head with her crozier! By way of apology (or provocation?!), every year she offered him quince pasties in the shape of the crosier of the abbesses of Baume.

You can find pâte de coing in the following patisseries:
