During le Jour du Macaron this year we also visited Christophe Roussel, whom I had not had any macarons from before. They were delicious! And so is the shop! Full of colour!
For a summary of Christophe’s career: he started a traditional apprenticeship and quite some interesting experiences such as in Uruguay in a Relais & Château, after that in Switserland in the Casino de Berne, and in Saint Barth with Jean-Marie Rivière (Alcazar, Paradis Latin) where he worked along Laurent Couegnas (Ducasse, Pré Catalan) for some years.
Where best to celebrate the 8th Jour du Macaron but in Paris! So finally, after a lot of talking and no doing, the Thalys is booked, the Hotel is selected, the patissiers tour selected (participating and non participating), and the girls are ready to go!
Starting with breakfast at Fauchon, (not participating)
Next take a taxi from Madeleine to Acide (not participating)
