New macaron flavours at Pascal Caffet MOF France

Paris Macaron Week at Pascal Caffet – 18-24 April

When a Meilleur Ouvrier de France (MOF) announces a Macaron Week in Paris, you need to make a detour.  Hidden away in a side street in Paris’s fashionable 16th arrondissement, just off Rue de Passy, you’re in for a treat. Remember Pascal Caffet’s award-winning pastries: éclairs, top pralines, and his legendary Las Vegas?

Pascal Caffet Patisserie Macaron Week April in Paris

From 18-24 April, Pascal Caffet is adding three new flavours to his already large collection of exquisite macarons. I was given a special treat to taste them for you in the boutique before they officially come out tomorrow.

For Matcha Green Tea lovers, his Thé Matcha is spot on.  Just the right dosage to taste: subtle but enough for the special tea to shine through the interior fondant ganache. I would thoroughly recommend that you START with this flavour, to fully appreciate its taste.

Next up, is Mûre or Blackberry. All of Pascal Caffet’s fruit flavours are compotes and not too sweet, which is why I love his macarons. Again subtle, it’s as if biting through a tangy soft fruit jelly with the added crisp macaron shell.

New Yuzu macaron by Pascal Caffet, Macaron Week Paris

The third flavour is Yuzu.  It’s a hit!  Slightly acidic with the citrus flavour eventually whacking the taste-buds after the two or three seconds and leaving a wonderful lingering after-taste without it being tart. As they say in France, “Chapeau”, so hats off to you Chef Caffet!

Yuzu’ll be needing to taste this macaron – at least! Add 3 more macarons, since for 4 macarons bought, he’s giving away one free!

      Let’s hope we have time when you’re over to try them together. And yes, the other flavours are great too. I also love the passion fruit with dark Venezuela 70% Chocolate – it’s so different to Pierre Hermé’s “Mogador” and lighter too.

      Agreed Tony – feel that there are so many people who head to the same places for macarons. For any macaron lover, this is one of the best addresses in Paris!
