A combination of different macarons, including a Christmas one at a popular city cafe.
Macarons, those sweet little delicacies. Then again, Sydney is home to the king of macarons. Sydney is also home to a popular cookbook author, of who has launched her own macaron baking kit. Which patisserie or cafe do you keep coming to again and again for that sweet, sugary fix? Why? Combination of flavours? Not too sugary? The crunch factor? The taste?
1. Adriano Zumbo Dessert Train - The Star (just any of Zumbo's macarons)
2. Lindt Chocolate Cafe Martin Place (delices)
3. Sweet infinity Strand Arcade City
4. Thomas Dux Grocers on Crown Street - for their lavender and pistaccio varieties
If you're after quantity over quality, don't forget that McDonald's cafe McCafe sells 6 for $9.95 which equates to $1.66 each.
According to Wikipedia, "In France, McDonald's sells macarons in their McCafés (sometimes using advertising that likens the shape of a macaron to that of a hamburger). McCafé macarons are produced by Château Blanc, which, like Ladurée, is a subsidiary of Groupe Holder, though they do not use the same macaron recipe." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macaron
