    i'd agree for the most part. but the good ones are really amazing. thin crisp shell, chewy meringue, really direct flavors.
    We have the recipe for LeNotre's macarons. The vanilla is superb, I will admit (and uses about five beans per pastry). However, there are at least a dozen desserts I would rather eat before macarons, especially for the price. If you must have them, Pierre HermÃ[​IMG] is supposed to make the best in Paris.

    I remember eating them on the street in Riquewihr, the tackiest town in the world, surrounded by German tourists in orange socks. They were quite good. Once in awhile, you have a great one on a petit four platter. Other than that, I don't think I've ever had one.

    I got 24 pack of macarons at LadurÃ[​IMG]e in Paris a year ago...the best I ever had. My GF and I finished the whole pack in less than a few hours.

    My wife and daughter had a bunch of them at Bottega Louie the last time we were in L.A. and fell in love:

    I am looking forward to the Turkish Delight fad though. Long overdue.

    Love that stuff. If you start the company, I'll invest.

    MMMMMM Moon Pie. Love me some Moon Pie.

    ...

    btw, I thought this would be Macaroon thread, which I also love very very very much.


    Fak! so did I. Discount the above, I'll eat my bomb-ass MacarOOn in piece.

    +1. I love them, but like all fads they can be annoying. I am looking forward to the Turkish Delight fad though. Long overdue.

    That would be amazing, and it needs to happen NOW.

    that's a Moon Pie, bro

    Yup.

    Me too! Suffice it to say, I am disappoint.

    Turkish Delight always makes me think of The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.

    I'm not the biggest fan, but I've had both LadurÃ[​IMG]e and Pierre HermÃ[​IMG] and PH is definitely way better. More interesting flavors, better textures, nicer presentation. Last time I went to Pierre HermÃ[​IMG], they had some foie gras ones that looked interesting.
