What a difference 18 months makes – now, I can’t seem to turn around without hearing that macarons are the new cupcakes, but when I was in Geneva last month, my visit to Laduree was not quite as joyful as I would have hoped. The whole no-refined sugar, no-dairy, no-eggs things really does not make dessert easy, though, from everything I had read, macarons should be naturally gluten-free. So yay for that, though that day I was more focused on how a near-vegan diet can be le sad at times. Most of the time, I revel in how much I can still eat on said diet and derive much enjoyment from the resulting good health. Still, as you saw from the posts, we had a lovely day in Geneva, and, as for the macarons – husband had the date-fig, the blackcurrant and the pistachio. He said that the date-fig was all date, so I renamed that macaron the Lara Bar macaron. Now I am just going to keep my fingers crossed for vegan macarons for our next visit.
