Edible Art: Exquisite Macarons at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie at France Pavilion in Epcot

I saw this story in regards to food on the Disney Parks blog and wanted to share.  Anytime I see an article regarding Epcot and Food, I always know its going to be worth my time to read.

Macarons

Almost (almost) too pretty to eat, the dainty macarons at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie at the France Pavilion at Epcot are lined up like beautiful jewels in the pastry case – edible art, a sophisticated, light-as-a-feather French classic. Fans will fly to Paris for the perfect macaron, but now Epcot World Showcase guests can savor the tiny treats.

Thought to have originated centuries ago – macarons are a delicate, crisp-chewy balance of almond meringue cookies sandwiched with silky centers. They come in various flavors: right now you can find chocolate, raspberry, mixed berries, pistachio and white chocolate, and banana passion, packaged in a pretty box of five for $10.33 plus tax. (For the ultimate macaron decadence, try the rich, creamy chocolate macaron ice cream sandwich next door at L’Artisan Des Glaces.)

Macarons are a complicated sweet to create – take a look at Chef Olivier Saintemarie’s ballet of sweet ingredients.
