The 18th Century Biscuit Factory of Mauritius
Let the smell of freshly baked biscuits lead you on an appetising journey to the local, historical and charming cassava biscuit factory known as Domaine Les Délices. The ancestors of the Rault – Sénèque family, who settled in Mauritius in 1807 and developed an exceptional recipe for cassava biscuits, established this family-owned biscuit factory 140 years ago in Mauritius. Launched on the local market in 1870, the cassava biscuits have gained much popularity and are now well known around the world for its delicious flavours.
The family have carefully kept the ancestral philosophy alive and today, many of the original equipment used 140 years ago are still in use, such as the antique scale and the traditional oven that date way back to the beginning of the factory.
Since 1995, the family-owned factory has been warmly welcoming visitors to discover its traditional cooking methods done by hand by their artisans and its unique recipe which has remained unchanged since the past five generations.
You will be guided around the factory, get acquainted with the history of the factory and even indulge in a little biscuit tasting. This activity is a charismatic and exclusive experience in a delightful atmosphere.
Guided tour in a 140-year-old local and family-owned biscuit factory. Discover the unique cooking methods and biscuits recipes that have remained unchanged since the beginning of the factory including a biscuit tasting.
