O&CO. navettes are made with olive oil and orange blossom aroma. Handmade and baked, they may be enjoyed any time of the day.

The Navette is a small boat shaped traditional biscuit of Marseilles and further of Provence. The shape of this orange blossom flavored biscuit was invented at the end of 18th century, and evokes the legendary small boat which conducted the Saint-Maries from Palestine to Provence: Mary-Magdalene, her sister Martha, and Mary-Salome. This small boat ‘without sail either row’, moved only by divine want, has been celebrated for almost two thousand years. But it is only since 1781, its birth date in Marseilles, that it has been the incarnation of this religious event, taking a large part in the celebrations following Candlemas day, being bought by dozen, one for each month of the year.

They are 100% natural, made with no additives, no colorings or whatever preservatives.

Food Pairings: strawberries with olive oil with mandarin, fruits salad, dipped in coffee
