Macarons A La Fauchon...

This is my favorite macaron picture. This is at Fauchon dishing out the pistachios macs.

Fauchon took special care so your macarons didn't get crushed on the ride home..

The lights in the macaron case made the colors look much brighter...

Fauchon macarons loved to pose in still lifes :)

They didn't mind being painted either...

My last (New York) Fauchon macarons...
They were giving them out gratis the last day...sigh...
'Course a few blocks away you can get lovely macarons at La Maison du Chocolat, and they come from France.
And soon Florian Bellanger's Mad Macs NYC should be sending out their macs, so the world is not all that bleak...
Thanks all for letting me obsess on Fauchon. This is like making your scrapbook public...


  1. Now those look like real macs. Mine pale in comparison. I never did get them made...

  2. obsess on, you have to live out the pain and sorrow! If not, it can ruin your life and I want you alive and happy!

  3. When can we look for the opening of the Paris Breakfast Cafe?
    I'm thinking a petit branch in Ky. with watercolored walls and macarons in toute les couleurs! C'est une bonne idee, n'est pas?

  4. BONNE IDEA Shabby!
    I'll open a chain to equal Dunkin' Donuts and Crispy Creams!
    We'll show those cops what they should be eating with their morning coffee/expresso...
    The servers will wear "macaron" hats too !
    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee !

  5. There's good news. I found on NYtimes that Fauchon is planning on reopening. I sure hope so :)

    Your scrapbook of Fauchon is eye candy delicious!
    Such edible details. It is like having your cake and eating it too.
    I think I could get into this type of scrapbooking.
    Fauchon is going to miss you too.

    Malheuresement "they" always say we will be opening soon blabla..
    They told us Xmas at the store.
    I'm not sure I believe them :(
    Meanwhile LADUREE IS supoosedly opening in the PLAZA in September.
    Or so they say...
    But what are we fanatical frankophiles to do mean time? ? ?

    This has been like a week long fantastic, beautiful wake, to lay Fauchon's closing to rest.
    I will look for a welcome back party here..IF..Fauchon's do..maybe, hopefully, open elsewhere like THEY say. Unless Paris Breakfasts beats them to it. ;-)

  9. MMmmm. I agree with Shabby, you definitely need to start your own cafe!

    As for macarons, you lucky thing, don't you get to be experiencing the real thing shortly? I just finished my last Paris post on my blog and it made me all weepy.

  10. Do you know, I think you are getting over it and sounding positive. Already you are taking about La Maison du Chocolat and Mad Macs NYC Chin up!

  11. YAY PAUL!!!

    Aw, I was just making a list of places to get macarons at. No Fauchon. But the list is lookin good, eh?

    Your cafe would be the best cafe everrr.

  12. I can't even breathe, looking at these pictures. Now *these* are some tasties.

  13. Truly enjoyed visiting your site. Your watercolors are gorgeous! Love being able to go to Paris without a passport.

  14. I`ve never tasted one....I`m`s unfair!!!!!

  15. munch..munch... crunch ...crunch...! mmmmm...

    Carol, I actually come and visit you almost daily! I just don't always leave a comment. Hope you don't mind... I adore Fauchon's, and this painting is truly wonderful - mouthwateringly beautiful!!! I am saving up for another Carol Creation, hopefully now that my classes are starting I will have more spending money!!! Hugs to you!

  17. Tes photos et des dessins sont toujours aussi sublimes !
    Et c'est très plaisant de découvrir chez toi, un Paris gourmand !


Love hearing from you
