Beyond the breakfast table...

As well as being delicious on hot buttered toast or a fresh croissant Bonne Maman can also add a touch of sweetness to many savoury dishes as well as a luxurious ingredient in baking and cooking. We’ve developed many recipes using Bonne Maman, just look at our recipe section or Bonne Maman: The Seasonal Cookbook.

But, we know you are full of fantastic ideas too! We’d love to see your creative uses for the Bonne Maman jars and for you to share your own recipes with us. Submit them here and we’ll share them with all Bonne Maman fans.

More than just food...

Once all that lovely Bonne Maman is finished and the jar’s empty, don’t throw it away. There are many uses for empty jars and it’s kinder to the planet (and your pocket) to make the most of your empty jars. Here are just a few of our suggestions.

Pantry pots

Spice up your spice range

A simple but effective idea for storing all those herbs and spices that seem to hide every time you need one! Jars filled with different colours and shapes of favourite flavourings such as cinnamon sticks, mace, pink peppercorns and cloves will give your kitchen a unique look and ambience.

Simply attach Bonne Maman lids to the underside of a shelf, fill the jars and screw in place for an eye-catching and easy to use kitchen feature and spice storer.

Gardening storage

Dessert ramekins

Our Bonne Maman mini pots make excellent dessert dishes. Try our delicious cheesecake recipe in them!
