Sure, it’s pretty, but…what exactly is a French macaron? It’s not quite a cookie, but instead, a very sweet biscuit with a thin layer of ganache or buttercream filling. Since this treat is meringue-based, the macaron is light, airy, surprisingly moist and will melt in your mouth. You’ll be left with a sweet aftertaste, and trust me, you’ll be craving more. If you haven’t tried one of these sweet little French treats, you’re missing out. We all know that the food world experiences fads just like any other industry, and Macarons are one of the trendiest foods right now. They’re popping up everywhere, from swanky restaurants to food trucks! With the confection’s recent popularity, macarons are not just for specialty French bakeries, making them much easier to acquire than in the past. To find an authentic French macaron in Boston head over to Formaggio Kitchen. There, the macarons are crisp and naturally colored, unlike many others that are artificially dyed. Looking for a less formal setting? Venture over to the Patisserie on Newbury Street for a vast selection of flavors. I know I’m most excited for, Cameo Macaron, Boston’s first macaron food truck, which conveniently delivers the delectable sweets to campus. Make sure you keep an eye out!
