Inspired by my roots & my childhood memories

Handmade Happiness for Food Lovers!

At Pipaillon, we share happy memories, good food & love!

Our simplicity & savoir-faire give birth to genuine & delicious recipes that will make each moment of your day instantly better: Jams, Chutneys & Preserves.  The best jars can be.

We pride ourselves in working with only the finest certified organic ingredients from the best local producers who lovingly tend to their crops.

Our products are seasonal & swiftly handmade in our workshop after each picking.
So, if the pickings aren’t bountiful, we patiently wait for mother nature to provide us with more next season!




Our Story

       “Teamwork makes the dream work” - Bang Gae

       Catherine Bodson

Back to the roots! 

Her inspiration?  The Bodson nurseries near Liège in Belgium... but also the women in her family and her passion for great food & cooking. And rock'n roll of course...
After an international career in the private and public sectors, Catherine decided to embrace a new challenge and keep rocking around the clock with her handmade productions.

And Pipaillon was born.  

       Julien Leclercq

As for Julien, it’s first his friendship with Catherine that made him push open the doors of Pipaillon.
He started as a client, and Pipaillon soon became his favourite canteen and delicatessen of choice, supplying himself with jars for his home recipes.

Later on, Julien set foot in the workshop and then jumped on board becoming an associate of this wonderful adventure.  Who knows why, the idea of opening a bar-canteen lurked around the back of his mind. 

An amazing team combining strengths, efficiency and humour!

The Atelier

The secret of good jars?

Perfect organic ingredients, local farmers, a great team, lots of love & all of Pipaillon’s savoir-faire!

Pipaillon specialises in several conservation techniques:

  • The sugar for the jams 
    • The salt for the capers, olives and lemon confit 
  • The vinegar for the chutneys 
    • The oil and the pasteurisation for the tapenades

So Good, so Chic!


Our Ranges


We take our time so you can enjoy yours!  Our jams are gently heated for two days so we can extract every bit of every fruit.  

 Rock Jams •  Each of the Rock Jams includes fruit, sugar, lemon, spices and all of Pipaillon's savoir-faire.  

 Classic Jams The Classic Jams are made for those who like it classy and classic, just pure and great taste.


Our chutneys are essentials, like the little black dress in a sauce.  They subtly balance fruits, onions, dried fruits, vinegar, sugar & spices for an unforgettable sweet & salty experience.

Try them in your sandwiches, with cheese, with meat & poultry or with veggie salads.


Simple pleasures, great tapas: Siciliaanse olijven, zongedroogde tomaten, olijfolie, amandelen, kappertjes, olijfolie en nog veel meer. Eenvoudige combinaties met een Pipaillon tintje!


Whole Sicilian lemons for a Moroccan classic!  Not only for the traditional couscous and tajines.  Also for roasted chicken: half a lemon inside, the other outside, then roast the poultry.
Rinced and diced, Yellow Submarine will accompany fish tartare or lentils and quinoa salads with a dash of olive oil.
