best flavour macaron you have tried and where?
I've tried a few but they seem to be so sweet. What is your favourite flavour and why? For a newbie what would you reccomend? I always get overwhelmed when I got to the pastry shops.
I've tried salted caramel and that seemed to be my favourite so far. Not too sweet but with just the right amount of salt.
There's a great French bakery near me (north of NYC) that makes terrific macarons. I really loved their raspberry (has a little tartness), and their cassis (black currant). Pistachio is great too - definitely not overwhelmingly sweet.
Time to pick up more macarons! Thanks for the reminder! :)
I am incapable of choosing only one....! These are in nyc:
Macaron Parlour- hazelnut
Bouchon bakery- chocolate (the filling is a dark ganache that is not overly sweet)
I find some of the fruit flavors have overly sweet fruit jam fillings, so i stick with nut flavors or chocolate/vanilla most of the time
Pistachio, rose and chestnut are my favorite flavors at Laduree. The Sriracha peanut butter macarons at Macaron Parlour in New York are an interesting non-traditional flavor that actually works well in small bites.
