When I went to New York City over Spring Break, I bought 13 macarons. They were amazing. One from Bouchon. Six from La Maison du Chocolat. And six from Ladurée. And please forgive me. I was so happy that I forgot to take a picture of the store. *sigh.
I think I went a little overboard with macarons. I'm actually regretted it a bit. Macarons
don't have a long life, and it's hard to eat thirteen macarons in a few days.
This is a large pistachio macaron from Bouchon Bakery. This is actually the first professional
macaron I've had in my life. I consider it a milestone. This was around $3.50.
Look at the feet!
The macaron was a little too sweet for me. (Actually, I found that all macarons in general are too sweet for my taste. But then again, I find all meringue-based foods to be too sweet.)
The macaron was quite delicious. Maybe it was just me, but I thought the buttercream had a hint of coconut in it.
And if you look closely into the picture above, you can see Times Square. You can even see the crystal ball in the background. It's the circle of light, which is underneath the rectangle of light. It's also above the left half of the macaron.
Actually, why don't I just point it out to you?
You see, I even drew three arrows to show you, in case you were confused about where that small ball of light was.
Coming up next: more macarons! I hope you aren't getting tired of this.
