A box of heaven

A colleague of mine just came back from a business trip to Tokyo. As a favor, I asked him to stop off at Pierre Herme and buy me some macarons. Boy was I delighted when I saw the box he bought. Gorgeous, delicious, and plentiful. My skinny yet wonderfully gluttoness wife and I have been enjoying eating and identifying the flavours of these tasty treats. The obvious ones are yuzu, coconut, chocolate and rose. There were two though that we weren’t sure of. One of these both S and J of Kuidaore thinks is passionfruit-chocolate but the other we just can’t figure out… one of those “there’s at least 3 or more flavours here, but damned if I know what they are” experiences. That said, all were delicious. To date, I am yet to discover any one who does macarons better than Pierre Herme.
