In the case of the Italian migrants who settled in Romans-sur-Isère in France in the 19th century, it was their much-loved Italian jam-filled biscuits. However, just as the people adapt to their new home, so too do their imported food specialties. Today, Société Nouvelle des Douceurs de Jacquemart continues to bake the traditional Lunettes de Romans, created when two cultures met. European Business talked to Managing Director Jean-Christophe Radouan about the birth of a Dauphinoise tradition.

This allows the owners and staff the opportunity to give guests a truly unique experience from the rooms, to the food, to the grounds and all the extra amenities.
The coronavirus crisis has focused minds like no other crisis before it. Most importantly, it has come as a wake-up call that, amongst other things, more sustainable business practices and an increased respect for the environment must inform decision making in the future.
