Lionel explores a madeleine factory, a canine club, the use of hypnosis in language-learning, and much more in his eclectic series of videos.
We continue our visit of the madeleine factory in Liverdun. This time, we see the finished product coming out in its packaging. Claude, who has been working at the factory for twenty-nine years, shows us the packing process.
Lionel takes us inside an amazing store filled with multicolored candies called dragées, or sugared almonds. This confection is very much a part of French tradition as it is offered at weddings, baptisms, and communions. A good-quality dragée is made from a top variety of almond like the Avola. Larger almonds require a thinner layer of sugar, which is considered a sign of quality as the delicate almond flavor won't be overwhelmed by the sugar.
