French Macaron

Updated on December 5, 2014

French Macaron / French Macaroon History and Recipes

Although French macarons have only recently started popping up in bakeries outside of France, their takeover of the world's bakeries has been swift and decisive. Food blogs already called an end to the age of the cupcake and crowned the French macaron as the reigning sweetheart of the pastry world. Macarons are fast becoming one of the most famous French confection.

It's French Macaron, Not French Macaroon!

The culinary world is just like the trendy realm of celebrities and fashion. A certain dish or ingredient can rise to stardom and just as quickly become dated, cliché, and boring. The longevity and strength of a food trend depends solely on the temperamental tastebuds of the hungry public. Foods that have gained the adoration of chefs and foodies rise to celebrity status, becoming the hip new thing. Chic foods appear on food blogs and magazines and soon everyone wants a taste. Such is the case of the French macaron.

Do not make the mistake of confusing the macaron with its chewy, coconut-based cousin the macaroon because that second "o" makes a huge difference in the pastry world. The macaroon is a dense cookie commonly made with shredded coconut. The macaron is a cute, little confection consisting of a flavorful filling made of butter cream, ganache, or jam sandwiched between two delicate cookie-like shells.

The History Of The Macaron

It all started with a macaroon

According to some culinary historians, the French macaron can trace its lineage to Italy, where monks made a meringue cookie made of ground almonds, sugar, and egg whites. The cookie was called "macaroon", deriving its name from maccherone, an Italian word meaning "fine dough". In 1533, Catherine di Medici and her pastry chefs introduced the macaroon to France. The name and pronunciation changed from "macaroon" (mac-a-roon) to "macaron" (mah-ca-rohn).

The modern macaron was not invented until the 1930s. Pierre Desfontaines of the French bakery Ladureé had the ingenious idea to combine two plain macaron cookies with a ganache filling. The concept made the macaron and Ladureé famous, sparking the beginning of the macaron movement that now grips the world.

The Appeal Of The French Macaron - Taste And Color

Colorful French Macarons Pictures

The appeal of the French macaron is obvious to those who have encountered it, but to the uninitiated, it is hard to fathom why people so easily fall in love with a mere cookie.

For some, it is a matter of love at first sight. Imagine strolling by a quaint French bakery and spying a glass display case filled with an array of little cookies resembling vibrant, pastel-colored hamburgers. The sight alone is enough to seduce curious eaters, but it takes a taste to convince them in joining the macaron movement.

The macaron is essentially a blank canvas for pastry chefs to explore the endless variety of flavor. Regardless of your personal tastes, there is likely to be a macaron with a flavor that you will enjoy. There are classic flavors that never go out of style like vanilla, chocolate, caramel, raspberry, and hazelnut; as well as exotic flavors like orange blossom, rose, anise, saffron, matcha green tea, and earl grey. Some flavors are seasonal like pumpkin spice and gingerbread and the availability of flavors is completely dependent on the bakery. For the more daring eater, adventurous pastry chefs have devised macarons with such flavors as bacon, foie gras, and truffle.

The French Macaron Invade The World

Within the past couple years, the French macaron has popped up everywhere. Like its predecessor the cupcake, macarons have effectively infiltrated the media. Food and wedding magazines dedicated articles to the macaron and Oprah Winfrey notably raved about the treat in her magazine "O". The macaron craze has also spread to television and film. Despite the historical inaccuracy, director Sofia Coppola incorporated macarons into a scene of her 2006 film "Marie Antoinette" and the beloved treat was featured in an episode of "Gossip Girl". The recent release of the cookbook I Love Macarons by Japanese pastry chef Hisako Ogita, created a stir amongst anxious and ambitious home bakers who wish to replicate the magic of the macaron in their own kitchens.

Aside from the buzz generated by the media, macarons are becoming more visible in cities around the world. Bakeries and cafés specializing in macarons have appeared in metropolitan cities including New York, London, Tokyo, and San Francisco; but the mecca for macaron-lovers is Paris. There, the macaron has achieved such fame that chain restaurants like McDonald's and Starbucks have cashed in on the hype and started selling their own brand of macarons. In the United States, frozen macarons have become a welcomed rare find at Trader Joe's grocery stores and Whole Foods Markets has started offering macarons as well.

As more Americans become privy to this food fad, the macaron movement will continue forward, but the future of these enchanting snacks may be in danger. News of McDonald's macarons caused distress amongst macaron-lovers who fear that cheap, super-sugary macarons will degrade the treat's integrity. In response, foodies are now questioning if the macaron has become too popular. Regardless of whether macarons become mainstream or not, it is ultimately the stomachs and tastebuds of the hungry public that will decided the future of the French macaron.

Weighting instead of measuring ingredients is the trick to success. It is much more precise. If you are not using this recipe here, try finding one listing the weight of ingredients.

It is best to separate your eggs 2 days in advance. Let the egg whites at room temperature for two days.

If your almond meal is not fine enough you must grind it in a blender.

Your almond meal must be dry. You can pop it a few minutes in the oven at low heat to dry it.

Marcarons are difficult to make: don't despair if your first batch is far from perfect.

      These are really trendy in England at the moment, popping up on loads of cooking programs / competitions. A lot are doing macaroon towers as well, which I don't really get if they are stuck on card but I've also seen some great ones on the outside of cakes. I saw Raymond Blanc make a great looking macaroon gateau the other day. Nice page Fanfreluche

      Me and my college roommate saw these little cute bites on television and we feel in love. Sadly you couldn't get them in stores at that time. Then one day one store had them and naturally we bought them. We planned a French movie night in which we would also indulge in macaroons! Sadly the experience wasn't as we hoped. The macaroons were horrible - the texture was awful, the only thing you could taste was the sugar and artificial coloring. You can imagine the disappointment. It seems the store imported the worst kind possible. My room mate has since then travelled to France where she could taste "the real deal" and she loves them while I am still waiting for my chance on a decent one =)

      I am not sure if they taste as good as they look, but they are really pretty. I may try making some :) Didn't know macaroons and macarons were different things though! Great lens :)
