Now that that's done, lets talk macarons! That's what were all here for anyway right?! Okay, so did you know that macarons are actually pronounced the way they look, as in macarONS, not macarOONS? I know! I had been pronouncing them wrong this whole time! But if you Google Macaron vs Macaroon, you will see! The things we learn everyday right?
Living down under meant that I was watching Masterchef Australia and Masterchef New Zealand instead of Masterchef USA (side note: I highly recommend watching the Aussie version - SOOO much more positive than USA), which meant I was able to see all the celebrity chefs from down under on the show. One of them was Adriano Zumbo, a pastry chef living in Sydney, Australia. He is famous for his intricate desserts, including his huge selection of macarons and his V8 cake.
When we decided to take the trip to Sydney, I was told by some friends that his Patissier was super close to where we were going to be staying, and I knew there wasn't any way I was missing out on his famous macarons! And let me tell you! These are by far the best macarons I have EVER had!
Everyone else seemed to think so too! It was very busy for a Wednesday afternoon!
here, and please tell me you will stop by his shop if you ever get to Sydney! It is a must! You haven't tasted macarons until you've had some Zumbarons!
I hope you get the chance! You wont be disappointed! But even if you don't, he has a cookbook out too that shows you how to make his famous Zumbarons. It's definitely on my list of books to get.
Thanks for stopping by and see you back early tomorrow for another Fresh Friday post!
