The Mighty Macaron - Paris Comparisons

Jump to last reply

Greetings Fodorites--
I thought Paris-bound travelers might enjoy my blog post on our Official Macaron Taste Test conducted in a marginally scientific manner by me and my travel companion.

While macarons aren't strictly a travel topic, they are French, and some of the best can be found in Paris. We tried several, including Laduree, Pierre Herme and Christophe Roussel. Macaron stops could be a perfect way to construct a creative itinerary, encouraging scientific study and rampant snacking in the interest of learning.

I find the colorful orbs overwhelmingly sweet, but I am clearly in the minority given their growing popularity. Ganache, what can I say!

Regards--
Julie
