I tried to keep this a secret from Sean but just couldn't. I am having Vanille Patisserie deliver a box of french macarons to our hotel while we are in the city. It' kind of funny because neither Sean nor I have ever tasted a macaron before, but we are both dying to. You can only see so many pictures before you are like...get...in...my...mouth.
I'l let you know what we think.
The owner of Vanille, Dimitri Fayard, is from France, of course and is suppose to be one of the top pastry chefs in the US. I had him throw in a couple of his caramels with salt.
