CYF 071 — mercredi 28 avril 2021 — dégustation de macaron
We have been on holidays for two weeks. We were supposed to go one week in Brittany, but because of the new lockdown rules we were not allowed to leave. Our new circle has a diameter of 10 kilometers. A big part of Paris is in our circle.
Pietro, my husband, had to work so the girls and I took our holidays « in Paris ». We did some nice things : having lunch « à emporter », walking rue Réaumur to watch the nice early 20th century buildings, going to the Jardin des plantes, visiting nice bookshops, etc.
And we did a « macarons » afternoon. We did not baked some macarons, we went to by some in famous places in Paris : Ladurée, Carette and Dalloyau. A macaron costs between 2,10 and 2,20 euros. It’s an expensive little cake. We have been nicely welcomed in Ladurée and Carette. But Dalloyau was quite different. The lady literally through the macarons in a paper bag with no respect for their fragility.
Back home, we organized a serious tasting. This is what you are going to hear in today’s episode.
