“Rewarded work”

Some flour mills de l’Orne also participated in the awards with the purchase of cups, like the Guénégo flour mill in Saint-Germain-du-Corbéis which presented a bag to each champion.

For their second participation in the competition, Maison M&J de Carrouges, run by Melva Russo and Julien Clairet, won two champion prizes for their croissant and their puff pastry brioche. “Our work is rewarded and we are proud of it. We claim the know-how of the profession and it is passed on to our five apprentices,” they rejoice.
