No, French Macarons & Macaroons aren’t the same thing!
Let’s put an end to the confusion. Macarons (rrrrrroll your ‘r” like tu viens de Paris!) and macaroons, while both delicious, are very different. Both are made from gluten free recipes, but that’s where the similarities end.
The macaron is a delicious and adorable treat made from almond flour, egg whites, granulated and powdered sugar. Normally they are filled with a buttercream, ganache, or various jams. They come in a variety of colours and can be customized to meet all your macaron needs. This treat is currently on trend because it’s gluten free and so darn pretty!
The macaroon is a much simpler and not-quite-as-cute confection. It’s made from egg whites, sugar, and shredded dried coconut and sometimes dipped in chocolate. Still yummy, but definitely not a French macaron!
There you have it! The difference between the macaron and the macaroon.
Call today to order the best macarons in Toronto (416-262-3400). Or pop into the shop and grab a few! Feeling adventurous? Sign up for one of our macaron making classes and learn to make the famous French sweet yourself.
July 13 – 17, 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Friday Night’s at the ROM
For the next eight weeks we’ll be dancing Friday nights away and selling party-goers macarons and dessert shots matching each week’s theme. The Royal Ontario Museum’s renowned Friday Night Live series begins this Friday! Buy your tickets now, as #FNL consistently sells out. Dates: Friday nights, October 10 to November 28, 7-11pm
We’ve added a few new classes to our fall repertoire!
Here is a brief description of one of our new favourites: A Lesson In Molecular Gastronomy – Desserts
In this two-hour, hands-on workshop discover the mysteries of the new “modernist cuisine” movement. Learn new and delicious ways to manipulate food products, presenting them in new forms on your plate. This includes Caviar Bubbles which topped our latest creation: the world’s most expensive cupcake.
Utilizing cooking techniques such as Spherification, Powderizing, Gelification and Air and foams we will create new and exciting dishes to tantalize the senses.
We will familiarize you with ingredients such as sodium alginate, agar agar and Tapioca Maltodextrin.
All participants will receive a set of recipes used in the workshop; and as always, everything is included in the cost (ingredients, tools and supplies).
We hope you join us on September 25th from 7-9pm for the first class!
