Macarons & More

Ever since I went to North Yorkshire a few years ago and visited the wonderfully epic Bettys Tea Room at Harlow Carr, I've had a bit of a love affair with Macarons. It's all the delicacy, the colours  and just their beauty. Plus they're pretty tasty too. I exclaimed on my first bite that I was just going to have to learn how to make them.

What I have now learnt the sheer artistry and ability. I can't make them for toffee! I've tried more times that I can count on my fingers. I've tried so many recipes. I will conquer them! I popped into Lakeland and purchased a Silicone Macaron Mould. You never know, it might help.

Anyway, I digress. The main purpose of this post is to discuss my sheer delight of finding Macarons in Norwich. Thank you Jarrolds and more so to Macarons & More. The range of flavours is amazing. There's Green Tea and White Chocolate, Salt Caramel, Rose, Violet and Blackcurrant, Lemon, Coffee, Mint and Dark Chocolate, Gingerbread and Chocolate, Vanilla and Pistachio. Each of them is divine. The above Macarons didn't last very long and we've been back lots already.

Just look at their styling from their Facebook page.

These Macarons are an absolute must! If you're ever in Norwich, you should definitely pick some up but make sure you go early in the day as they sell out quickly!

Fantastic post, I will definitely be getting some if I pop to Norwich. I blogged recently about my macaron recipe and also a trip to Laduree :)

Great blog, have followed on Hello Cotton!
