July 2001 - The Macaron - a Mouthful of Heaven
If you love sweets, look for the round, two-layered, pastel-colored pastries slightly reminiscent of hamburger buns in pastry shops on your next trip to Paris. They appear almost artificial next to the luscious fruit tarts and multi-layered cream and chocolate confections in the shop windows. The uninitiated might even think that they were created specifically for children, so fanciful are their pink, green and yellow hues. These pastries are called macarons, and despite their appearance, they are heavenly in both flavor and texture.
