Macaroons are the new cupcake.


I have been reading about macaron/macaroons everywhere lately and I have decided they are the new cupcake.

Why not? With their gorgeous colour, delicious flavour, they are the perfect bite size yumminess.

The experts at making macaroons are of course Laduree in France. Here is their definition of a macaroon:
"These small, round cakes, crisp on the outside, smooth and soft in the middle, are made every morning in LadurĂ©e’s "laboratory". With each new season, LadurĂ©e pays tribute to this its most famous creation by creating a new flavour."
Their new flavour for autumn 2008 was Jasmin mango, for spring 2009 it was Bergamot.

Flavours that are permanently available:

Chocolate - Bitter Chocolate - Vanilla - Coffee - Rose - Pistachio - Raspberry - Blackcurrant Violet - Caramel with salted butter - Red Fruits - Orange Blossom - Liquorice - Lemon

Seasonal flavours:

Coconut - Mint - Amande - Spice and soft fruits - Chesnuts - Praline - Lemon Cedrat

How does that sound? Well a bit closer to home (Sydney) you can get a dose of Macaroon from Lindt, Adriano Zumbo (Balmain) and La Renaissance (The Rocks).

Who feels like a macaroon now?

Have a delicious day
