You no longer have a leave home to find your favourite macarons - you can have them delivered to your door.
Yes, I can see you all swooning with delight. I certainly did when John Sheehan turned up at my door with a box full of their best flavours. Sorry John, but it was the macarons that did it. :)
Marché du Macaron is Brisbane's first retailer specialising exclusively in handmade macarons. It's the brainchild of John Sheehan and Trish Hollomby who is the one in the kitchen baking up the goodies.
The idea came to John on a recent trip to Paris and has morphed in this new dessert darling delivery service.
The flavours include salted caramel, lavender and chocolate, pistachio, vanilla bean and mixed berry, all sandwiched together with gooey ganache fillings. My fave is lavender and chocolate.
And if you are excited by that - how about the Christmas flavours - Egg Nog, Rum Ball, Cranberry & Honeycomb and Panforte and they are all gluten free!
You can order the macarons online or call 0416 413 388
