La Belle Au Bois Gourmand: Macarons

Thursday, February 23, 2012


Eating a macaron is like walking on a cloud, immediately sets you in a good mood with the prettiest pastel colors and an intense flavor.
It’s also a matter of harmony: while picking the fave taste one’s already thinking about how they will look in the box, matching the perfect colors as in a painter’s palette.
This example of cute pastry has its origin in Comery, a city in France.
As time passed we got used to La Durée brand, Pierre Hermé, Pascal Caffet and so on.
I personally prefer La Durée and I got admit I adore the boxes that like a coffret, hide these mysterious beauties.
Once in a while I select the redfruits, even if I tend to pick the extra chocolate, caramel, almond or pistachio ones.
They were beloved by important ladies in the world history such as Caterina de Medici and Marie Antoinette.
You can even watch the latter eating macarons in Sophia Coppola’s alike named movie, interpreted by a marvelous Kirsten Duns!
The bravest may try the flower ones, instead of fruits.
You will be enchanted by Pierre Herme’s rose taste.
A supporter of PH macarons? For sure miss Blair Waldorf in the TV series “Gossip Girl”.
When Meester’s character is upset about the disappeared Chuck Bass (performed by Ed Westwick) on the last episode of season two, he gives her a reason to have been spotted in Paris: just to buy her the macarons she loves the way he loves her back.

Romantic kiss.
Curtains down.

The end
