Yummy Macarons in Toronto
After a few dissapointing sampling of macarons in this city I am happy to report some big success on this front. There's a new shmancy tea place on Queen called Fred's (old Juice for Life spot next to the Rivoli blogto link here: http://www.blogto.com/announcements/2...) that has a small selection of macarons - only 3 flavours on my visit - that were on a serious Laudurée level. Small caveat though - stick to the fruity flavours - lemon was my fave.
Just tried the ones from Petite Thuet.
First day (OK actually 2nd day as bought the day before) they were too 'biscuity and crumbly'.
Next day they were as good as any I've had in Toronto.
Following day they were 'too chewy'.
Which all suggests that they are authentic!
And I had some chocolate-dipped macarons in Tokyo at Isetan Shinjuku - so they do exist - but weren't really an improvement!
