"Le Casel" de Château-Thierry "Le Casel" de Château-Thierry

This site is dedicated to all men and women who have a passion for excellence in food and who want to practice this passion in their professional life.

This site tells the culinary story of Jean De La Fontaine’s hometown. This story was written in golden letters by a local pastry cook named Léon Hess who established his business in Château-Thierry in 1903.

Léon Hess won the gold medal at the Paris Concours Culinaire International (International Culinary Contest) in 1912 for his masterpiece cake called « Le Castel », named in honor of his hometown Château-Thierry.
We are proud to pay him a tribute through this site.
