What's not to like? These fluffy, divine pillows of eggs, almond meal and sugar, were cleverly concocted by the French and are a delicate, bite-size treat for sweet tooths like me. Don't know your macarons from macaroons - wikipedia can help you out here. The delicate image above however is from Aussie food blog Raspberri Cupcakes (just the name makes me drool a little!) Pop over here to read the fabulous tale behind these beautiful pink creations. She has a brilliant and funny way of telling her story - plus there is a recipe too!
For Sydney-siders another local food blogger - Chocolate Suze - has conducted important market research comparing Lindt Maracons with Adriano Zumbo's. Check it out here... and of course if anyone wants to join me in giving a second opinion and verifying the results, I'll be there with bells on. The only question is which ones do we taste test first?
OH my just read that Adriano Zumbo is celebrating his brithday by creating 60 macaron flavours and turning "the patisserie into a macaron paradise"! When - Tomorrow (november 6th)! 60 crazy flavours including: Iced Vovo, Goats Cheese and Bluebery, Golden Gaytime, Blue Cheese and Pear, Popcorn and Cheeseburger to name just a few! How would you choose?!
