So I bought five macaroons at Vanille Patisserie - in some great flavors - chocolate, peanut and honey, white chocolate and lychee, chocolate hazelnut, and red velvet. Then I went to Michael Canady Le Chocolatier and bought what I thought I could eat on the spot. How cool do these look? (now keep in mind that I have neither my usual photo set up nor my autopsy suite this week, so the pics might be kind of crappy. Please bear with me):
The one with the dancing couple on it is a blueberry cream with dark chocolate. It was VERY tart and good, although the blueberry overwhelmed the chocolate. It was too fragile to autopsy. Plus I was in public and it's weird enough to be photographing your food - much less taking it out of your mouth half eaten and photographing it.
