The macaron's origin isn't definitively clear, but it is thought to have been brought to France from Italy as early as 1533 by Catherine di Medici and her pastry chefs. Macarons gained fame in 1792 when two Carmelite nuns seeking asylum in Nancy during the French Revolution baked and sold macarons in order to support themselves, thus becoming known as "The Macaron Sisters." The macarons they made were a simple combination of ground almonds, egg whites, and sugar. No special flavors. No filling. Just 100% cookie.
Years later, our Macarons are filled will wonderful tastes, flavour and fillings. We are not the Macaron Sisters but instead a mother and daughter partnership who are so happy that these little treats were invented.
