{c'est délicieux}

Lately I've been obsessed with all things French. I'm not sure from where it stems except maybe it's the budding of Spring. It makes me want to jump on the Concorde (if the Concorde still existed) and jet away to trés jolie Paris! If I can't do that, then at least I'd like to lie in bed dressed in an emerald colored bohemian long fringed dressing gown and munch on macarons all day. And not just your typical French macarons (although lovely) made with a merengue type pastel cookie sandwiching a say pistachio or vanilla ganache--but a macaron with an American twist. Where is such a place? Ici mon petit tete de chou...

Macaron Parlour Patisserie

This New York City bakery sells delicate crisp French style macarons with fillings made for the American palate. Got a hankering for a breakfast treat? Try a Candied Bacon with Cream Cheese Filling variety.

Going camping? Forgo the campfire and pack along a few S'mores macarons: Brown sugar & honey cookie with dark chocolate and marshmallow creme filling.

Or taking a road trip to Graceland? What could be a better tribute to the king than the Elvis: Peanut Butter & Caramelized bananas with chocolate ganache filling.

Finally! The ultimate PMS cure: A Cheetos macaron! Cheetos infused cookie with white chocolate ganache filling.

And you need not be in NYC to enjoy these special treats. Macaron Parlour Patisserie ships throughout the USA. Never has there been such a Franco/American collaboration since the advent of the French Fry n'est-ce pas?
