We fell in love with macarons last summer in Paris – those exquisite confections, light as air yet – mysteriously, magically – delicately crunchy, satisfyingly gooey. With stunning saveurs like hazelnut asparagus, jasmine, and olive oil vanilla, we dream of them, still.
Despite our penchant for sucre, we’ve yet to master the macaron. (Let’s be honest, master is too ambitious a goal.) But – lucky for us, Clara’s father has become a macaron spécialiste in the days since July, and her childhood kitchen’s been transformed into a macaron making machine.
Well, it’s Macaron Day in New York today, alongside, bien sûr, le jour du macaron in Paree. And, we thought, no better day to introduce the new comer to the macaron scene:
