It is very well known among the jam-making fraternity," a source said. "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.
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," the source added.
