Gluttony XI: Macarons vs. Macaroons

Posted in Food Blogs, Gluttony with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2009 by Enrique Enfuego

IMG00137-20090831-2313French macarons are a recent addition to my life. Before it was strictly the coconut-based deli bakery-style macaroon.

Ever since this watershed moment, the two delectable pastries have been vying for my heart’s love.

I was immediately a fan of the assortment of flavors one could find with these sweet treats (Paulette in Beverly Hills provided the above dozen), but the fresh coconut in a chocolate dipped macaroon still takes the cake. Although the French are determined to win me over with their chocolate dipped macaron ice cream sandwich.

Stay tuned for further developments in this battle for one man’s heart.

Google Maps has some interesting interactive maps, some more morbid than others. Here they have collaborated with the Los Angeles Times to display this year’s entrants in the 2009 Los Angeles Cupcake Challenge.

If you are in the LA Metro Area jonesing for the frosted pastry, you now know where to look.

Google Maps is the best.
