Yum: La Maison du Macaron

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

We had a bunch of friends over for dinner on Friday night, and one of couples brought a box of macarons from La Maison du Macaron/Madeleine Pattisserie. (Why do I say macaron, not macaroon? This article from Departures gives a lovely explanation.) And, oh, what macarons they were!

These were really the most delicious examples of a macaroon I have ever eaten--each one was like a tiny cloud of vibrant tastes. The flavors included things like orange, apple, coconut and cranberry-strawberry.

This box of colorful confections was absolutely perfect gift to bring to a dinner party and wish I lived near Chelsea so I could bring them to all my future dinner party engagements.

My daughter gave me a box of caramel and pistacio macarons for Mother's Day. What a treat! Of course, I HAD to share them, so I only got to eat a few, but I can't wait to visit the shop myself and tray some more flavors.
