More Food Porn: Macarons

Macarons from La Maison du Chocolate, found here in London as well as other countries in the world.

I do not know why I’ve gone through my life without having any of these prior to my trip here to London. I feel as if I’ve come across a wonderful discovery, one where these delightfully light and soft, with flavorful ganaches within.

Did I mention flavor? These little beauties come in multiple flavors, from the typical chocolates and vanillas, to the more obscure rose waters and caramels. I have yet to come across one that made me go “Blech”.

Part of my reticence in trying these cookies previously come from my aversion of sandwich cookies with their typically hard-to-stale cookie consistency. Additionally, Macarons are not a staple of bakeries and/or chocolatiers in the States, so they are hard to come by.

However, I know for a fact that a certain little world-renown bakery that’s a mere two blocks from my house. I anticipate a few trips in the near future.
