Cuckoo For Macarons

I bet you were guessing another French icon that starts with the letter C, ends with L, and has HANE in the middle when I left you last. But no, today I’m sharing photos of another Parisian obsession of mine. Yep, I’m definitely cuckoo for macarons! Specifically le délicieux macaron from Ladurée, a double-decker concoction that consists of a melt-in-your-mouth meringue sandwich encrusting magical fillings with names like griotte amande (cherry with almond) and cassis violette (Blackcurrant violet)…is it any wonder I lose my mind wandering from one location to the next?

There is a lovely tearoom on the Champs-Élysées…

And another sweet location on Rue Royale, where the original bakery began…

and where you can find all sorts of sinful things besides the macarons…

as well as other products to soften the sweetness…

Don’t worry about the sticker shock–just close your eyes, smell then taste the Pétales de rose macaron (which I think everyone should try at least once in a lifetime even if you are not big on sweets), savor the harmony in your head, and you won’t feel the pain in your pocketbook anymore. Believe me, it’s as good as it gets :D.

    In English it’s macaroons; French macaron , from Italian dialectal maccarone. However you say it or eat it, they are art de piste. Thanks so much for sharing these
