Top | Gone Walkabout
(post, Tiffanie McCoy)
I'd always heard lovely things about macarons but didn't really understand the fuss from the description. Then my husband brought me an assortment of tiny macarons from a lovely bakery in Paris as a consolation prize for not being able to go to the wedding of a friend there (short version of the story: the two year old didn't want to be parted from me and left behind with the grandparents). Anyways, I know understand why people love them so! Each bite is a wonderful progression of crisp to moist and chewy, and such intense flavors! This is the actual box I devoured. The flavors were chocolate, coffee, raspberry, lemon, pistachio, and creme brulee.
