I passed by a really lovely pastry shop at the end of my day in Pornic and decided to go in and buy something I’d been wanting to try for months…Macarons! I had seen them at plenty of shops in Nantes, but hadn’t ever walked away with anything more than a pain au chocolat or a tarte aux pommes. But these macarons from Gavet just looked too good to pass up, which makes the fact that I dropped the box seconds after stepping out of the store all the more disappointing. Je suis maladroite, moi.
Clockwise from upper left: chocolate, coffee, salted caramel, raspberry and lemon.
They were light and sweet and I will sacrifice my body before I let my next box of macarons suffer the lethal consequences of gravity and my own clumsiness.
