Delightful and delicious meringue-based confections, french macarons are melt in the mouth decadence. These gluten free treats are a mouthful of extraordinary flavour and texture and are equally perfect as bomboniere or as a sweet finish to a meal.
The macaron was first born in Italy centuries ago, but it is now an exquisite Parisian specialty. The macaron is simple in nature, made only from finely ground almonds, sugar and egg whites. Its distinctive feature lies in its almond flavour and round shape. When bitten into, its delicate but crunchy outer shell gives way to a soft almond meringue on the inside. For a heavenly experience, two macaron halves are stuck together and filled with a rich chocolate ganache, custard or flavoured Creme au Beurre.
