A Taste of France in NYC!

One of my favorite gluten free treats are french macarons.  In past years, I have been able to enjoy them in NYC at places such as Payard and Fauchon.  However, since both of these places closed and I have not been to Paris recently to enjoy the delicacies at Ladurée, it has been a long time since I've had a macaron.

Well, here is the good news....the Macaron Cafe has opened in 2 locations in NYC and for those of you not in NYC, they have a website where you can order their macarons.  In fact, the Macaron Cafe reminds me more of Ladurée than Payard or Fauchon with its long list of flavors - more than 50!

The Macaron Cafe confirms that their macarons are both gluten free and kosher certified.  They also state that they can be kept frozen for up to 6 months and kept refrigerated for up to 7 days.

Here is a selection of some of their macaron flavors:
  • Apricot
  • Cappuccino
  • Caramel "Fleur de Sel"
  • Chestnut
  • Coconut
  • Creme Brulee
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Dulce de Leche
  • Espresso
  • Grapefruit
  • Honey Lavender
  • Jasmin
  • Lemon
  • Lychee Rose
  • Mango
  • Matcha Green Tea
  • Mocha
  • Nutella
  • Orange Blossom
  • Passion Fruit
  • Peanut Butter
  • Pineapple
  • Pistachio
  • Praline
  • Raisin Rum
  • Raspberry
  • Rhubarb
