Delicious sophistication

One of my favorite treats in the world is finding a place that sells great macarons. When I came across the pictures of this luscious white gem filled with the multicolored confections, I flipped over two of my fave things: macarons and white interiors, together in one space. What else could I ask for? In the last couple of years, I've noticed a boom of these French delicacies popping up in several stores. Back in 2009, Theurel & Thomas opened its doors in San Pedro, the most affluent suburb in Monterrey, Mexico. It's the first store that specializes in macarons in that country. The flawless bright interior is the absolute best backdrop to showcase these sweet confections. Also, the way they chose to display them is exquisite, and the packaging, impeccable. The whole concept was created and designed by the Mexican Agency Anagrama. The boutique-like store is a contemporary twist of and old French patisserie. Now I have another reason to pay a visit to Mexico.

Are you a macaron lover? Whenever you're in New York and want to have some of the best macarons in town, you must visit Macaron Cafe and La Maison du Chocolat. Or if you rather buy them online you can do it here. But of course the ULTIMATE macarons are in Paris where you must stop by La Durée so you can have the most scrumptious experience of your life. Have a delish weekend!

I'm one of those freak people that was born with a missing taste bud because I honestly do not like macaroons but by gosh they are splendidly beautiful!
