Abstract

At the end of a month-long journey around France to learn about the centuries-old almond cookies called macarons, the author interviews Madame Blanchez, a baker who continues to make them in a traditional manner in Saint-Emilion. Her methods and ingredients, along with the history of her recipe and the macaron in general, are discussed. The phenomenon of the macaron parisien, a newer version of the traditional macaron that has been causing quite a stir in Paris, is also examined.
