What is a trip to Paris without a few macaroons with coffee?
There is a fabulous upscale cafeteria at the Louvre Museum that looks like a restaurant. With one of our lunches we got a complimentary cup of macaroons. The brown one was clearly a coffee flavour. The light green was pistachio flavoured. The purple one had us stumped.
Because it tasted awful.
But we nibbled away trying to figure out what it was.
Great in soap and potpourri...not so great as a macaroon.
