|Macarons a.k.a. Macaroons|
The variety is endless. Some of the flavours that Thobor's offers are Lavender, Pistachio, Earl Grey, Raspberry, Coffee, to name just a few!! I googled "macaron" and found that one of the other bakeries, "La Bambouche" is hosting a charity macaron day March 20, 2013 in aid of the Red Door Family Shelter. Here's the link - http://macarondayto.com
Macarons a.k.a. Macaroons are delicate confections made of egg whites with a tasty filling. Think Oreos with meringue rather than a cookie dough and a yummier filling. Here is the wikipedia link to a rather detailed history of the origin of macarons. There is even a suggestion in the article that these biscuits could be made with foie gras. Well if you can use foie gras, you can use bacon!!

Something to brighten a Winter's day
Have a colourful day!!
yummy, they do look inviting. Cannot believe you left them on the shelf!ReplyDelete
I admire your strength. Some of those would've had to have come home with me.ReplyDelete
Those look delightful! I always confused the coconut confection with these but now realize that the coconut confection is known as a macaroon, and the ones you show are considered macarons. I've never tried the macaron before. Thanks for a lovely post!ReplyDelete
I've never seen macaroons that are multi-colored before! Beautiful! Wow, I can't imagine having four French bakeries within walking distance. What a temptation! I enjoyed the post!ReplyDelete
