Pierre Marcolini (Paris, FRANCE) ★★★★★

Pierre Marcolini is a world famous chocolatier, pâtissier and confiseur but I didn't know he makes such delicious macarons too!

There are some really interesting flavors here. As always, I asked their staff to name their most popular flavor and without hesitation she said "caramel and chocolate".

OK, that's what I am getting.

The taste of the month, tomato and basil, looks intriguing too.

This trio was the best 3 flavors by a country mile (caramel & chocolate - red, tomato & basil - beige, violet with chocolate coating - chocolate).

Caramel and chocolate. Rich, flavorful, divine.

But I like the "Tomato and Basil" even more. Delicate jam made with Sicilian tomatoes and a hint of basil. Absolutely mouthwatering!

Equally impressive was the violet macaron fully coated with dark chocolate. This one was almost in a different league of its own.
