Yum ! We manufacture your personalized and gourmet cookies to measure …
« Today, I am going to introduce you to her brand, Diane de Fursac, the creator of BISCOUITE, and her little stamped cookies. »
B – BISCOUITE, why did you choose this name?
I would say: BIS for the cookie and COUITE for baking.
I admit that I didn’t think for long, it was quite spontaneous, I wanted an original and striking name.
I – Inspiration. Where did you get the idea to personalize cookies?
I did not invent the concept that comes from a French brand of personalized cookies, well known on social networks.
I wanted to adapt the idea to the consumption habits of Ivorians.
We love what is custom made, what is personalized because we love to be unique.
I wished that when a person receives a « Biscouite », they will feel special thanks to the message stamped on it
S – Shortbread. It is the basis of your cookies. Why this choice of recipe?
Shortbread is one of the most popular recipes for baking cookies.
As a foodie, I told myself that it would be interesting to take ownership of the recipe, to play with the ingredients.
We had to find a cookie recipe that allowed marking and gave a beautiful visual after baking.
C – Cause. Tell me one or two causes that are close to your heart and why?
Children and the animal cause.
I can’t stand that you can hurt people who can’t defend themselves.
O – Origin. What are yours?
I am a quarteronne of Franco-Ivorian nationality.
I was born in Abidjan and was fortunate enough to grow up there in a loving family.
U – Universe. What is the Biscouite universe?
« To each his own message »
« Everything is said and eaten »
For our 2 sweet recipes, we chose Ivorian products.
Being able to say / write whatever you want on standard cookie shapes (square, rectangle, round ..) or more original such as a unicorn, a heart or the map of Côte d’Ivoire or Africa.
An original and gourmet communication medium.
I – Itinerary. Tell us about your professional and personal journey.
I did my classes in Abidjan and communication studies in Montpellier.
Returning to Ivory Coast, I worked at the French Chamber of Commerce, before joining several communication and event agencies.
I have been fortunate to meet inspiring people who have guided, trained and pushed me to surpass myself.
I started custom cookies in addition to my job. I admit that I didn’t get much sleep the 1st year (laughs) but the feedback was so motivating that it gave me the strength to continue.
Since April 2020, I have fully embarked on my project..
I take this opportunity to warmly thank all the people who believed in Biscouite, and who continue to trust us.
T – Trend. What will be your trend for 2021? Should we expect surprises?
2021 will be: new recipes, new packaging, great collaborations …
We also hope to be able to expand the team in order to satisfy even more people and gourmets.
I would like 2021 to be a year of development (well I hope so 😉)
E – Hope. Your wishes and hopes for the youth of Côte d’Ivoire.
I will tell them to believe in themselves, in their ideas and desires. To set goals and do everything to achieve them.
I wish peace in Côte d’Ivoire.
