Crème de la Crème® confiture extra is a unique style of french jams that dates back centuries but has yet to be discovered in the US. Julie Myrtille combines traditional techniques and fresh, inventive ingredients to create a full line of confiture extra called Crème de la Crème® to be made, bottled, and sold from Austin, TX. 

Confiture extra is much lower in sugar than typical jam and free of preservatives.

To create a full line of Crème de la Crème® for stores and online, Julie Myrtille is facing some pretty large expenses, such as: license & permit, commercial kitchen fees, insurance, website, etc. The estimated cost is $15,000.   

She is asking for a little help from those who love her products and want to see her take it to the next level, so her goal is to raise $5,000.

 

Julie Myrtille has been making jams for 15 years in Paris. Crème de la Crème® represents the culmination of years of work, finding stunning flavors and centuries old recipes to make food that is authentic and sincere to a tradition of culinary arts in France.  

By supporting its introduction to Austin, you are assisting in growing to the culinary arts in our community ! The money raised through this Kickstarter campaign will allow Julie Myrtille to create a full line of Crème de la Crème® for stores and online.

Julie Myrtille arrived in Austin, TX from Paris just a few months ago to carry over a love for french pâtisserie. 

Currently operating in the sustainable Texas farmers markets throughout Austin, Julie Myrtille’s creations are quickly gaining attention in her new home. 

Julie Myrtille’s work in the culinary arts earned her several major awards and national recognition in France, and her blog showcasing recipes and culinary techniques is the most searched pâtisserie website in France.

Julie Myrtille is inspired by Nostradamus, the French apothecary widely famous for his prophecies credits him with predicting many major world events. Indeed, he was also an avid jam maker. ;) He published a Traité des fardemens et confitures, variously entitled Moult utile opuscule and Le vrai et parfaict embellissement de la face, in 1555.
