Honey Bee French Macarons

$5.50

10 left


The macaron is one of the most revered and elegant French desserts, and Pastry Chef Keli Marks, owner of Cornelius-based Bakery 28, has combined local honey with traditional ingredients and classic techniques to create these delicious French macarons.

With a smooth, pillowy filling sandwiched between two light, airy meringue cookies, these elegant creations are the perfect bite-sized sweet treat.

This week's macarons are made with pure, unfiltered honey from Soulshine Organics (28205). Harvested in August 2019, the honey is light in color with subtle notes of carrot flower and citrus.

Her background includes having worked for many of the top pastry chefs in the United States at establishments that include some of the most esteemed bakeries, restaurants, hotels, private clubs and culinary schools.

Chef Keli proudly sources ingredients from local farmers, including several Freshlist farmers, and uses organic, sustainable and/or fair trade ingredients when possible. 

The macaron is traditionally held to have been introduced in France by the Italian chef of queen Catherine De Medici during the Renaissance. Since the 19th century, a typical Parisian-style macaron is presented with a ganachebuttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two such cookies, akin to a sandwich cookie. The confection is characterized by a smooth squared top, a ruffled circumference—referred to as the "crown" or "foot" (or "pied")—and a flat base. It is mildly moist and easily melts in the mouth. Macarons can be found in a wide variety of flavours that range from traditional (raspberrychocolate) to unusual (foie grasmatcha). [Source]
