"M" is macaroons
« Reply #1161 on: October 18, 2007, 05:50:13 pm »

Ladurée's macaroons are what makes them so very famous: crisp discs of ground almonds with a soft middle, sandwiched together with flavoured cream. The macaroons are served festooned with raspberries, pistachio cream and other good things if you have some in the tea-rooms. I bought a large box to take home as well.

These macaroons are flavoured delicately with the highest quality ingredients. There's a basic range which is available all year round, and some seasonal flavours. (The black one in this box was a seasonal one; liquorice, which was surprisingly subtle and tenderly flavoured.) The flavours aren't what you'd expect - the pale pink one here is scented with rose petals, the gold one caramel with fleur de sel (sandwiched together with some of the creamiest, most delicious caramel I've ever eaten). At certain times of year an orange flower macaroon is available, and I had a violet and cassis one in Paris a few years ago which I still think about fondly on occasion.

I loved the squash round and the cheese round.
I think it might keep this game interesting if we
throw in a round with a theme every so often. So,
if you happen to be announcing a round, feel free
to pick a theme, and we'll see what happens.

A mild, soft goat's milk cheese. It's the one at the bottom of the plate in the picture.
