The title "one of the best workers of France" is only given in France during a competition that takes place among professionals and according to craft categories. Created in 1924, it rewards the know-how and is unique in the world.
Each candidate must pass several tests, respecting the tradition of a given craft. For cheese makers, the main tests consist in: organoleptic recognition, written and oral knowledge tests, and finally the making of a masterpiece.
Marie Quatrehomme receives the title in 2000, when the "cheese" category first entered the competition. Beyond the recognition from her peers and the public, this degree boosted the development of the cheese shop and her desire to continue with Alain and the team in the path of excellency and transmission.
In 2014, Marie Quatrehomme is promoted to the rank of "Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur", the highest honorary decoration in France.
