7 Destinations in Mumbai For Macarons That Will Make You Go ‘Oui’!

It's raining macarons!

Macarons have gained great popularity across the world (and the internet) over the past few years. Some attribute it to their beautiful delicate sweetness, while others claims it’s because, with their pops of colours and adorable size, they photograph really well. Either way, it’s evident that macarons are here to stay. However, as anyone who has ever attempted to make them at home can attest, macarons are extremely tricky to make. One wrong ingredient or a slight mix up of temperatures can result in disaster. That said, here are some patisseries in Mumbai that get the macaron consistently right. Nom nom!

1) Le 15 Patisserie

Le 15 Patisserie was started by Pooja Dhingra, a graduate of the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, in 2010. Her aim was to bring the flavours of a classic French patisserie to Mumbai. With her macarons she succeeds; they sing of sophisticated flavours.
