Today I had my first ever Macaroon and I must say, I now know what all the fuss is about. They are delicious! Id never seen them in store before (we have pavlova and meringue puffs which taste similar) but a new Lindt Cafe opened up in Chadstone and they have a whole selection. I'm planning on trying every flavour!!

NOTE:  Those looking for Macaroons on the Gold Coast - check out FIXX cafe at QT Hotel.

  2. Oh I can totally understand the excitement! I tried every flavour too last summer after I discovered macaroons :) I am actually looking forward to try the Lindt cafe, I've heard so much about the one in Sydney!

  5. They look delicious. Definitely need to find a way to make them dairy-free for poor allergic me...

    I'm so jealous you're going to India! I wish I could, but I'm a poor busy student, so unless I manage to do fieldwork on some endangered language in India I will not get there too soon...

  11. Oh delish! I wish there was a lindt store in Canberra. Try them all for me!

  12. I have to say, I've still never tried macaroons myself, I also haven't been to check out Chadstone since it opened all those new shops. I should probably do that one night after work, it might be good therapy! I'll keep an eye out for the Lindt cafe :)

    And thanks for sharing the link!

  14. @Everyone ~ so is it spelt Macroon or Macaron? ive found it spelt both ways.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't know these Lindt Macarons that look delicious... I cannot complain I'm lucky enough to live in Paris and to enjoy macarons from Laduree everyday if I want to ^^
    (in french, it is "macaron", I have never heard of 'macroon'!)

  16. I've never had one in my life, simply because is something you don't see here, in Portugal.
    I think I'll have to bake some :-D

  18. They look so tasty! I'll have to try to make some myself one day. And they are so colorful, they seem to be capable to lighten up a really dark mood. Perfect for autumn :D

  21. ooh yum, i've been planning on buying a box from the collins st store for my birthday party next week, could you tell me how much they are????

    ReplyDelete
  22. @ashleah ~ they were $2 each. But I think a box works out cheaper.

  23. yummy to look at, and yummy to eat :)

  24. I've been aching to try one of these for ages - might just have to pony up!

  25. two words: Pierre Herme. in Paris. {www.pierreherme.com} they're the first I ever tried and my palette is permanently spoiled- I haven't found anything nearly as delicate and wonderful! and I'm in nyc so that's a bit of a problem ):
    also, I think 'macaroons' is the english spelling and refers more to the cookie-ish coconut mounds and 'macarons' is the french spelling for this delightful treat. darn you for inciting my craving!!! (;

  32. these treats look like heaven. I've only eaten the boring macaroons out of a box from the store. maybe they are different.
    india smells like incense. it is a wild place - dreamlike mostly. anything can happen there - among the green fields, the mountains, the tea plantations, the buses and airports. it is in some way an inexplicable mixture of the past and the future. vast. it is vast and magical. enjoy your trip!

  33. i have never tasted them but they look delicious! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. i love macaroons too - i think i have finally perfected how to make them which is a little dangerous because now i want them all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  35. When I went to Paris, one of the top things on my list to do were to try macarons. And how wonderful are they?!

    If you are ever in Paris or London and get the chance to, you must taste Pierre Herme's macarons, especially the salted caramel flavour - they are heavenly!

    --xo.

  44. Reading about macarons makes me miss Paris very much. I love the packaging at Laudree. And I have yet to try Pierre Herme. Apparently they are much much better than Laudree. Mmmmm

  45. oh my gosh!!!! my first ever macaroons where from Donna Hay General Store in Wollahra (Sydney). It was absolutley to die for. Since I've discovered them, I always stop at Lindt Cafe to grab a few!!! cupcakes are so yesterday!
