Brioche Vendeenne

The brioche vendeenne is a sort of brioche flavoured with orange-water, “eau-de-vie” spirit or a mixture of the two. Traditionally, godparents used to give a huge brioche vendeenne at a christening; weighing between 20 and 30 kilogrammes it had to be carried on a ceremonial litter by two people!

Chavagnes en Paillers and St Paul en Pareds, near La Roche sur Yon celebrate this confection with competitions for the best brioche, and the person who can eat the most brioche!
