That’s what makes eating French macaroon a pleasure and looking for the tastiest is part of the fun. There are various ways to enjoy macarons and here we will share some useful tips on how to select, evaluate and taste the macaron in a way that will significantly change your perspective.

Whether you want to try eating macarons for the first time or you’re already hooked to it, here is what you should be looking for:

The Shell

It is actually hard to really define the ideal or the perfect macaron shell. But in our opinion, the shell should be slightly shiny and crunchy as well as thin. It should not be flaking and ideally the shell should be as thin as a hair.

The Foot

In congruence to the shell, the macarons should have a properly related size and degree narrow foot and it should be found encircling under its shell. This is the part that develops when the macaron is cooked in the oven.

The Interior

Despite the slightly crunchy shell, the interior should be soft, slightly chewy and moist. This is the perfect texture for the perfect macaron. It should fill your mouth with pleasant flavors whether classic or otherwise.

Tasting a French macaroon should be a pleasing sensation and you can tell this the first moment you bite into it. So, if you take everything in slow motion, the first bite into the shell must give you a crisp and resisting experience.

Before your teeth sink into the interior part, you will experience a slight resistance on the shell followed by the silken filling that overwhelms the mouth with its smooth and rich flavor. The flavor can be anything from fruit purees to chocolates. There are also other French macaroons that have strong flavor combinations including hazelnut, lemon, pistachio, vanilla and raspberry. If it’s your first time tasting this tiny cookie, we recommend that you take few classic flavors before you go on experimental or bold flavors. This gives the experience more thrill and fun.

We recommend that you eat the macarons a few bites at a time so that you can savor all the flavorful pleasures offered by this wonderful delicacy. You can experience the crunch, the shell texture and the flavors on both the filling and shell.
