Ma Mére Maison (which roughly translates into My Mother’s Kitchen) are Cape Town’s go-to French Style Confectioners. Business partners, Lexi Bechet and Di Spicer, have not only perfected more traditional recipes (their fudge is a classic!), but are putting a twist on old favourites with delicious results like mulled cider caramel, maple smoked bacon and salted macadamia nut nougat, olive oil nougat (which is best described as “elegant”) and, my personal favourite, Cereal Milk macaroons. I went to go visit their kitchen & retail space at the Salt Circle Arcade in Woodstock and got to watch them work their magic over a batch of caramelised white chocolate macaroons.
