Sweet Treat

Macarons are the perfect parting gift for wedding guests

With a French background ourselves, the LTEC bloggers enjoy mostly anything with ties to France and the lifestyle of Marie Antoinette – especially pastries. There are many different versions of the origins of macarons, but whether it be with Catherine de’ Medici when she journeyed from Italy to marry Henry II of France or centuries before in a French abbey we are thankful nonetheless.

These little pastry delights are a perfect addition to any of your wedding revelries. Available in an assortment of colors -like the color of the year– and flavors, you can order them in your wedding colors or find the perfect color and flavor to match. Lucky for New Orleans, there is a macaron connoisseur in our midst. Sucre’s Executive Chef Tariq Hanna has polished the recipe to the French-style macaron. Available in an assortment of colors or the option to specialize your color, these $2 each treats will add the sweetest touch. Individually wrap a couple of dreamily colored macarons to pass out to guests as parting gifts or opt for a tower of the pastries for guest to snack on at your reception.

You can also find these lovely French pastries at Haydel’s Bakery and Chez Pierre New Orleans in a variety of colors and prices.
