What does Nancy’s oldest family of confectioners have in common with LU cookies? You will discover it during this mini-exhibition, realized with the association Terres d'Argonne.
From Varennes-en-Argonne to the Petit Beurre of our childhood, including Nancy, the Lefèvre family marked the world of biscuit at the time of the industrial revolution. The Confiserie-Biscuiterie Lefèvre-Lemoine was founded in 1840 in Nancy by Antoine Lefèvre. His younger brother, Jean-Romain, founded the biscuit factory Lefèvre-Utile in Nantes in 1846.
You can discover the Lorraine family roots of the LU brand, the French biscuit leader.
About the venue
The building dates from the first quarter of the 18th century. Located in one of the oldest districts of the city, behind the cathedral, the Rue des Soeurs Macarons (formerly rue de la Hache) housed, until 1982, one of the oldest pastries in Nancy. Since 2019, the ground floor of the Sisters Macarons House is now naturally dedicated to the development and transmission of Nancy’s gourmet heritage. The house of the Macaroon Sisters houses the museum Fours des Soeurs Macarons created by the Confiserie Lefèvre.
