Macaroon madness

Without even a local Ladurée or Pierre Hermé to give rise to their popularity, these little French treats are erupting like pretty, pastel chicken pox all over the city. Fluffier than sandwich cookies, more discreet than cake, and pretty enough for Marie Antoinette, macaroons are the perfect New Year sweets. Here are the ones to try:

Shiso, kiwi with pear, kaffir lime, sesame

Macaron Café
Tarte tatine, tiramisu, rose, matcha

Caramel apple, coconut with passionfruit, cotton candy

Bouchon Bakery

Chocolate, caramel, pistachio

Madeleine Patisserie
Cassis, praline, ginger, fleur de sel caramel

I'm glad your blog showed up in my google alerts! I'm even more glad to hear that there are places in the city other than Fauchon where I can get my macaron on!
