Facts About Macarons

  • The first macaron cookie was made in Italy, introduced by the chef of Catherine de Medicis in 1533. Not France, as many people believe.
  • The name macaron comes from the same Italian name of maccarone, both meaning a soft doughy texture.
  • The original macarons didn’t contain filling. They were extremely simple cookies made of almond powder, sugar and egg whites.
  • In the 20th century Pierre Desfontaines had the idea to fill them with creamy ganache and sandwich them. Soon macarons became the most popular cookies in France.
  • In Paris, the most sold ‘sweet’ is macarons, beating its French rivals the éclair and gateaux by double.
  • The world’s tallest pyramid made entirely of macarons was created in 2013, using 8540 macarons donated by local entrepreneurs. It now holds its place proudly in the Guinness Book of World records.
  • Macarons, in their classically made form, are gluten free.
  • March 20th marks NYC’s Macaron Day. Bakeries across the city indulge passersby with free macaron treats to celebrate the sweet confection.
  • The average macaron has 70-100 calories. In comparison, the average muffin is 400 calories. That means you can afford to splurge on a few.

  1. I really like what you guys are usually up too. Such clever work and reporting!
    Keep up the great works guys I’ve incorporated you guys to my personal blogroll.

  2. We are a gaggle of volunteers and opening a brand new scheme
    in our community. Your web site offered us with useful info to work on. You have done an impressive task and our entire community will probably
    be grateful to you.

  3. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  4. Heya are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own.
    Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!
