This past weekend, my boyfriend and I went on a macaron mission. We looked up the best macarons in Chicago, and traveled the 40 minutes there to finally try a taste of these special cookies.
It’s crazy that it took me this long to taste a macaron. I am, after all, obsessed with everything pertaining to France. But the best things are ones that you have to wait for.
Chocolate, hazelnut, nutella, coffee, green tea, pistachio… Raspberry framboise, strawberry champagne, and lavender. Vanilla, my favorite, fitted in a striking blue.
The verdict was that I’m now completely obsessed. We sat down for a couple and then ate them all. Crunchy on the outside, gooey in the middle. They were delicious. More macaron adventures to come!
Overall, my rating for Vanille Patisserie is…
Excellent – I feel like I’m in France!
Vive la France!
