Macarons de Saint-Émilion – These are seriously addicting! The macarons de Saint-Émilion (traditional French macaroons) are crunchy on the outside, and chewy on the inside…sort of like a soft Amaretti cookie, and not at all like the pastel colored Parisien Macaroons. In fact, don’t tell the Frenchies but Macarons (macaroons) likely have an Italian influence.
The world weeps for Notre Dame de Paris… “Ça m’a fait quelque chose au coeur – comme si une partie de moi mourrais…” (It made my heart ache – as if a part of me had died.) – said my French mother when she heard the news.
