Once upon a time in Saint-Michel, France lived a master pastry chef named Joseph Grellier. He had a secret recipe for round, meltingly soft and golden biscuits called "Galettes St Michel" that he lovingly baked in his wood-fired oven.

The venture was such a success that the artisan bakery turned into a biscuit shop and in 1919 became the "Biscuits St Michel" Company.
