Crazy For Macarons!

As a Frenchman, there are many things that I am passionate about when it comes to promoting French foods and cuisines. We have the very classic foie gras, confit de canard, boeuf bourguignon, bouillabaisse among many others but who could forget the hot favourite for those with a sweet tooth…macarons! Nobodu is quite clear about the history of macarons but it could have been brought into France during the 16th century and later made popular by two nuns who were seeking refuge from the French Revolution by baking small pastries to support themselves. The initial macarons were very simple with just egg white, sugar and ground almonds. Then everyone knew what happened: French pastry began taking over the world with chic maisons such as Ladurée and others!

In this edition of The French Grocer blog, I am delighted to introduce the very exquisite creations from Swiss pastry chef Gerard Dubois: These wonderful macarons are 100% handcrafted and made with the finest ingredients. Back in 1991, Gérard Dubois opened the first La Rose Noire Pâtisserie in the most prestigious shopping mall on Hong Kong Island. In over 2 decades, that one simple operation, a 30-seat restaurant and cake shop, has turned into a reputable enterprise. In 2012, Gérard and the team opened a HACCP/ISO/FSSC 22000 certified state-of-the-art factory in Clark Free Port, The Philippines.

Take your pick from an assortment of flavours such as Chocolate, Earl Grey, Coffee, Lemon, Orange, Passion fruits, Raspberry, Salted Caramel and Vanilla. They come in a convenient 36–piece tray (each pack containing 2 trays), perfect for parties and large gatherings!
