HISTORY OF PUITS D’AMOUR (wells of love)


The first recipe of puits d'amour appeared in the eighteenth century in the book "Modern Cook" written by Vincent De La Chapelle in 1735.

La Chapelle recorded in his book two recipes, one under the title "gâteau de puits d’amour" which is a large vol au vent in puff pastry, topped with a cove filled with currant jelly, all meant to imitate the bucket from a well.

The other recipe "petits puits d’amour", made for individual bites, is also in puff pastry with red currant jelly.

In the eighteenth century, these puits d'amour caused a scandal because of their name, but at the court of Louis XV it was a great success in the King's intimate dinners.

Nicolas STOHRER preferred garnished them of vanilla patry cream, the top covered with a thick layer of caramel, obtained by caramelize sugar with a hot iron.

This traditional recipe has been ongoing for nearly three centuries at STOHRER, with small puits d'amour and big puits d'amour that can be shared by 4 to 10 people.

It's always a great success throughout the year but especially on Valentin's day when lovers come to pick up their puits d'amour at STOHRER.
