Brad Pitt bought 100 jars of handmade jam from France and personally collect it.
The actor is particularly interested in jars of the fruity delicacy from France made by Christine Ferber.
Apparently he and 11-year-old son Maddox flew to Alsace in order to track down the producer and load up their cupboards in both Los Angeles and Cote d’Azur.
“Brad is very particular about what he eats but fell in lust with this jam,” a source told British newspaper The Daily Mirror.
“He turned detective and discovered Christine has a little shop in the Alsace region, where she makes the artisan jams. It is very well known among the jam-making fraternity.”
The pair purchased 100 containers of the stuff made by a woman dubbed the “Jam Fairy”, costing them £12.
Brad, 49, has allegedly started to come up with his own versions.
After tasting plenty of the condiment in Europe he was inspired to try his hand at the tasty craft.
“From here, he jumped on a plane with Maddox and checked the place out first-hand. They had a brilliant time, tasting loads of jams and Christine’s other homemade delicacies,” the insider continued.
“They came away with dozens of pots. He and Angelina have now had to designate a special room just to store it in their Brignoles villa. And now Brad is even beginning to experiment with recipes of his own.”
Christine, 53, sells varieties including strawberry, vanilla, apple and caramel flavours.
Last year, she made 118,000 pots by hand with only a team of 10 people.
Her jams are used in the George V hotel in Paris, France as well as the English capital’s five-star Connaught hotel in Mayfair, London.
