Macarons have become highly popular and most talked about confectionery now-a-days. They have become a symbol of sweet surprise and a perfect gift for any event like a birthday or even a wedding. Who doesn’t love a good macaron, right? A macaron is a delicate and intricate French meringue-based confection made with almond powder, granulated sugar, icing sugar, egg white and food colouring. It’s almost a delightful feeling when you bite into this sweet tasting confection. The macaron is usually filled with jam, buttercream or ganache filling sandwiched between two colourful, flavoured cookies. This melt in the mouth, delicate goodness comes in a range of flavours and infinite colours. The most common flavours are almond, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, orange, lemon, pistachio and blueberry. People also tend to experiment with the flavours and combinations of two or more different flavours which makes it more interesting. These are gaining popularity in the city of Chennai too and here we list out a few places where you can find and taste these delicious pieces of love.
