Just when I had come to accept the fact that I will never have real French Macarons outside of France, or Laduree NYC, I happened upon a little piece of heaven right here in the O.C.
Merely Sweets is a charming little store front with wonderful displays. The macarons are made in-house, which is rare in these parts. But how would they taste? Their flavors sounded refreshingly traditional with a twist. The Earl Grey, the citrus and of course the pistachio. One of each please.
My official review... heavenly!
Although I am not having a party anytime soon, I made some mental notes. This is such a fun way to present the macarons. The large display here held well over 20 dozen so I would scale it down for a dinner party or event at Le Potager.
Fun, colorful and tasty. What more could one ask for? Isn't this perfect for a shower or even the wedding itself? Anniversary party? So many possibilities.
After sharing a couple immediately, I brought a few more home to enjoy with a cup of tea.
Merci Beaucoup Merely Sweets!
