Recently Brioche Pasquier invited me to throw a macaron manicure party to celebrate Galentines Day along with the release of their new range of macarons. I thought it would be the perfect excuse to invite some friends over for tea, macarons and a bit of a pampering session.
The macarons were frozen but they defrosted really easily and were still a very nice texture. Macarons are one of my favourite treats and I was impressed with these, especially with them having been frozen. The flavours are coffee, chocolate, vanilla, pistachio, strawberry and lemon. I think we all had a different favourite flavour and mine was vanilla. My guests painted their nails to match their favourite flavours and I painted mine as a macaron rainbow! I paired them with some different black teas as I always think black tea suits sweet things best. It’s robust enough to compliment the macarons without either overpowering them or being overpowered by them. I chose either Keemum, Ceylon and Earl Grey dependant on what my guests asked for.
I’d definitely recommend the macarons if you are having a party or if you just want a treat. They would be perfect to have in the freezer to have a couple whenever you fancy. One of my guests had never tried macarons before (I know!) and is now addicted which I think says it all!
