In honor of our upcoming trip to Japan next week, I thought I’d share a photo of the Pierre Herme macarons we bought in Tokyo. They are nearly $5 US each, but oh so worth it! This one was the Montebello that was a combination of raspberry and pistachio flavors.
I had never been exposed to these French masterpieces until my trips to Belgium and France where nearly every other window we passed was a bakery who specialized in these addicting treats. We’ve tried a few in other places around the world, but the Pierre Herme ones are the best I have ever tried. Other have been chalky tasting and the fillings have been lacking. Looking forward to getting more of these in just a few days!
Have you tried macarons? If so, any recommendations we should try? Your favorite flavors? If you have tried making them at home and have a favorite recipe you can share, please let us know!
