ABOUT OUR MACARONS
Our macarons have a crisp outer shell that gives way to soft almond meringue on the inside. Our filling is made of the highest quality ingredients to ensure you taste the full macaron flavour in every bite. The majority of our fillings are based on a chocolate ganache using couverture Belgian chocolate. Most of our fruit fillings are made from real fruit puree so the flavour of the fruit shines through. We also use a smooth and luxurious buttercream for a selection of our other macarons. We take pride in the development of our own recipes and use techniques and processes learned in Paris to create the ideal macaron.
Allergy and dietary considerations:
Our macarons contain almonds and may have come in contact with other nuts.
The majority of our macarons do not contain gluten but may have come into contact with other wheat products. Flavours marked with an * are not gluten-free.
For optimal taste, our macarons should be kept refrigerated and consumed within four days of purchase. Remove from the refrigerator approximately thirty minutes prior to serving.
