I Love Macaroons…

I love Macarons book

 

For Christmas this year, I gave my best friend in LA a macaroon cook book.  She always describes herself as a “50’s housewife”-esque type so I thought this would be perfect.

That and every weekend she texts me pics of the madelines she bakes.  I love macaroons so I figured, give her the book and hopefully she will make them for me next time I visit.

Prosecco and pistachio macaroons.  Yummmmmm….

But apparently making macaroons is harder than I thought.

After trying all day, on the fourth attempt she made two vanilla macaroons.  Apparently looks can be deceiving; while it looks delicious, unfortunately she said it did not taste as such.

Fortunately, she has Bottega Louie around the corner from her office.  Fake it ’til you make it…

Macaroons please…

On of my favorite things to do is go look at (and consume) macaroons at Bottega Louie in LA.  So many amazing flavors, I’m partial to pistachio or vanilla, that I always have to try something new.

One of my fave little delicacies…now can’t wait to try Ladurée in Paris
