the premier of chian and fang's food trail in paris has to start with a bang, which is why we'll talk about nothing but macarons today. according to wikipedia, a macaron is a french pastry dating back to the 18th century, made of egg whites, almond powder, icing sugar and sugar. sounds simple enough, but apparently it is extremely difficult to make good macarons.
a grand total of 2 macarons in our bag
even the paper bag looks so grand
absolutely delicious caramel flavoured - my favourite
crunchy on the outside, smooth and fragrant on the insidewe also bought the croissant because we've never seen such a shiny croissant before. seriously, i think they waxed their pastries before selling them or something. it didn't disappoint either, was extremely fluffy and tasty!
laduree! laduree!i'm in love with macarons now. fang was so sweet to surprise me with a box of them on the last day, the rest of the flavours were all super duper yummy too!
pretty box, pretty macarons, pretty good way to end a trip
