Something to whet your palate: The gorgeous color palette of French macarons.


I’m pretty much obsessed with macarons. Last summer we went to Paris. It was the best vacation we’ve ever had. I was ready to pick up and move there. If it weren’t for our families and the petty but rather hindering language barrier I’d be there. One of the main reasons was the colorful and heavenly macarons. They were so stunningly beautiful and delectable. Aren’t they inspiring? The colors are to die for. I took tons of pictures of them. The ones above are from these fabulous establishments:

1 Paulette Macarons in Cali via happy cavalier.

2 Payard Patisserie in New York, Vegas, Tokyo…oh my.

3 Of course Laduree in Paris.
