Head to Paris to discover the best macarons!! Many beautiful gourmet houses offer delicious macarons: rather classic or original recipes, I have concocted a nice selection for your next Parisian stay!

Located in the heart of the Marais, on the superb Place des Vosges, is an institution of French gastronomy: I named Carette.

Since 1927, Carette has delighted tourists and Parisians with many sweet and savory dishes. So we went through the doors of this Parisian icon to taste its macarons.

On the flavor side, they are rather classic with some additions depending on the seasons like the date and orange blossom that we chose, accompanied by a traditional pistachio.

Both macarons have a very pleasant texture in the mouth but one can regret the somewhat artificial taste of the pistachio macaron which seems quite industrial compared to other brands tested.
