Frequently Asked Questions

What is a "macaron"?

A French macaron is a delicate meringue based French confection made with almond flour, meringue, and sweet fillings of choice. Not to be confused with the macaroon, which is a cookie made with shredded coconut and often dipped in chocolate. The shell of the macaron is naturally gluten-free.  Aside from both being delicious and similar in spelling, macarons and macaroons are entirely different cookies. First off, a macaroon is coconut based, where as a macaron is meringue based. ... Macarons range in color and flavors and macaroons are limited in variety.

What is the best way to enjoy macarons?

French macarons are very fragile, and they should be kept refrigerated. Macarons are extremely sensitive to moisture in the air. If you plan to keep them for more than 3 days, keep them in the airtight plastic containers they came in in the refrigerator. They will stay fresh for up to 5 days.  When you are ready to enjoy them, leave at room temperature for 30mn, then remove from the container.

How are they made?

We create our macaron shells from a cooked sugar meringue base, guaranteeing a crisp finish. The fondant element comes from the filling, sandwiched between two shells. Our fillings fuse the macarons together to become at one with the shells and release the full flavor. Our macarons are produced from start to finish in the same way as an artisanal craft.

What is the shelf life?

Freezing, the best preservation method! We freeze our macarons when they are at their peak quality to stabilize and preserve them for up to 12 months at 0°f.   Once they are defrosted, they will regain all the qualities of a freshly produced macaron and will have a shelf life of up to 5 days when stored in the fridge.

How long will my macarons last?

In the original packaging, our macarons will stay fresh for 5 days in the refrigerator and 1 month in the freezer.

Why are macarons expensive?

They require expensive ingredients like almonds, fruits, premium chocolates, natural flavorings, etc. The whole idea is in making a perfect product by taste and also visually. This requires good ingredients, precise baking, skilled filling and decorating.

How far in advance should I order macarons for a special event?

We avoid shipping macarons over the weekend because we do not want your temperature sensitive package spending the weekend in a shipping facility.
