Les macarons de Réau, my first encounter with these pretty traditional macarons à l’ancienne was at La Grand Epicerie two years ago. Ever since, I’ve been quite addicted. Imagine how surprised I got when I saw that the team from Les Macarons de Réau had a stand at le Salon d’agriculture earlier this year? I bought plenty of macarons and also recieved a brochure where they explained that they offer demonstrations on how they make their macarons. I spoke with Harmony, the daughter of the owner, and explained my interest of visiting them but my issue of having no car (which is needed to get there). Pas de problème! We will pick you up if you come to Melun (the closest RER station), she said. With a big smile on my face I left and couldn’t wait to visit them later in Spring…which I did, during the Easter weekend. To be continued.
