Les Jardins de Marie

A bit of history!

Is it to celebrate the Soissonnais country, which is her birthplace, or to express her love of neighbor and generosity that Marie Maryns has always devoted a passion to the culinary arts?

She has preferred the path of jams, confits and jellies that wends its way from orchards to wild berry bushes to the beaten path, sometimes with unparalleled talent, of roasts, sauces and pastries.

Each jar of Marie’s jam is an invitation to a culinary journey mixing local and exotic colors and scents, sometimes surprising, always succulent! Always anchored in her terroir, Marie lets herself be carried away by her crushes and her limitless imagination, which inspire her to make unlikely and daring marriages. Fruits, sugar, wine, vegetables, mushrooms, flowers, truffles and gold, are ingredients that mingle with delight in her copper containers, continuing a centuries-old tradition for the greatest pleasure of our taste buds!

It is moreover this know-how and originality that has earned her the title of world champion for these jams in 2012 and the Epicure d’Or award in 2014 as well as in 2015. Proof of her incomparable talent, Marie works with the greatest tables, the hotels Hotel Paris, the Maison Champs-Elysées or even the Relais et Châteaux les Crayères and even the table of the Elysée Palace!
