Ok! Most peps are mistaken within this too, haha same like me when I first heard this kind of term..
But now i can understand haha..
MacarOOn also call for egg whites in addition to ground or powdered nuts or coconut (which apparently is the American way).
It’s looks like this.. And often they are dipped in chocolate..
MacarO’s shells are often made of egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food coloring and usually filled with a flavored buttercream, ganache or jam.
It is very clear differences in appearance, macarons and macaroons.. Even both are meringue based, but they are made from different ingredients.
Oh when talking about macarons, i am super happy bcoz Ladurée (French pronunciation: [la.dy.ʁe]) just opened their shop in Singapore at Takashimaya..
Actually before they open here, I wish to have it at Paris as we plan our honeymoon there..
I am very excited to try.. And queing as well (@.@)” everytime there is new brand/stall or anyting just invaded to Singapore it will always be hit of town and peeps are q-ing like crazy..
At Window of Heaven now.. Yeap i am getting closer to “heaven”.. I am gazeing of those sweet and pretty macarons.. @.@
Ok now i am in Heaven of Macarons!
Yipppiii i can choose anything i want 0.0
I get box of 6 macarons:
– Salted caramel
– Marie antoinette
– Rose petals
My favourite will be Rose Petal and Marie Antoinette.. 🙂
This two flavour had their own fragrance and taste really unique..
Salted caramel for me is too sweet and vanilla too common.. Oh ya if you prefer something different, raspberry flavour really not bad, sweet mixed with sour of raspberry jam..
Ladurée comes with very cute and vintage design box.. The smallest shall be box of 6.. Think when u buy those macarons with box you also need to pay for the box, bcoz normal price for macaron is only S$4.90, but when i bought box of six i need to pay S$36.. Well consider luxury food for me haha.. Shall bite it very slowly, milimeter by milimeter and enjoyed it.. 🙂
