When it comes to making sweets, I’m more of a jam-and-granola-bar gal, but I’ve heard so much about delicate, puffy French macarons that I’m thinking about breaking my stride. Murielle, my French counterpart, blogged about them in October. Cecilia, our product manager, told me about the number of new Laudree outlets she saw on her last trip to Paris. And suddenly I found myself recalling a grad school party where someone splurged on macaroons from the Silver Moon Bakery, which were tiny and delicious.
This being New York, of course, someone has to call the trend and make the rest of us feel self-conscious. No matter. Have you made macaroons? Were they worth it?
