Biting into a macaron is an experience, as the paper-thin sparkling crust of a cookie gives way to the sweet assortment of the filling. Traditionally made with egg whites, our macarons are vegan and all about the innovative ingredients we use in them! No they are not made have aquafava!
A macaron is very different from a macaroon. A macaroon is a sweet chewy lump of coconut with golden crust.
A macaroon has 2 delicate almond cookies, that are sandwiched around a flavourful filling. The word macaron is derived from the Italian word maccherone, maning fine dough. It’s believed that the macaron cookie was born in Italy and brought over to France as early as 1533 by Catherine di Medici, a noblewoman from Florence who married the future King of France, Henri II.
Over time, different regions in France adopted the recipe but the macaron as we know it today didn’t come about until the 1890s, at the Parisian confectioner La Maison Ladurée.
