Macaroon: A baked confection of egg whites, sugar and shredded dried coconut. Dense, chewy and very coconutty.
French Macaron (\ˌma-ka-ˈroh\)
Delicate and airy, the French Macaron has an almond, sugar and egg whites-based shell. The shells have a light, crunchy texture on the outside and are slightly chewy on the inside. These shells are held together by a filling, typically made from a ganache butter-cream, meringue or jam. These cookies are most commonly a gluten free indulgence. We at Gourmet Boutique offer an extensive collection of traditional French macarons (maybe a bit larger 3-4 bites) should a macaron craving strike. Please stop by the Boutique to view the full selection. Should you be pressed for time, we have designed a few “best of collections” for in store pick up. The macarons will be packed to order and ready for pick up at the Boston location within 2 hours year around and 4 hours during holiday rush. Simply place your order for the desired packaged size and pick up at the store at your convenience. Our Macarons are hand-made, by Chef Cecile using almonds from Californian orchards, European Style butter, flowers extracts from south of France.
