How Will I Eat My First Macaron?

I have seen lots of gratuitous macaron coverage in the blog world in the last year. However, I have never seen anything about how to eat one. Thankfully, Veronica's Test Kitchen has posted a nifty little guide on how to eat a macaron. Because I will be eating my first one in about 5 weeks!

I need to know not only how to eat one, but which ones to eat?


So, for all you macaron lovers out there: What flavors should I request from Parisienne Friend, who will be bringing me a whole box of Laduree macarons?

Ah, but I have to admit, I'm one of those uncouth individuals who pops a macaron in her mouth in one bite. Yum-o.

My suggestion is that you can't go wrong with anything involving chocolate.

Salut,
Marjorie

Great post!! Thanks for finding it!

I like the smaller ones and do them in one bite. And, I usually go for chocolate and coffee. I am going to expand my horizons this summer and try other flavors.

Flavors to try: Amandes, Café, Pistache, Noix de Coco, Caramel au beurre salé et Vanille :)

Oh , How I envy you! Laduree macarons, I can only dream of them right now. One day. Yes, just follow my 3-step program of macaron eating and you are all set!

LBR,
Of course I will be trying chocolate and coffee...you know me! :)

Merci Angelique for the recommendations! They sound divine! I love coconut as much as I love chocolate...and all the other flavores you mentioned.

Veronica,
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by! I am honored!
Now, when are you going to start shipping your Petites Bouchees out of state??? :)

I never tire of these, especially when I can taste original flavors.

BTW, you're tagged for a bilingual meme (I just made it bilingual...)

To do or not to do, c'est comme tu veux.
