Food: Le Macarons Not Macaroons

"The belly rules the mind."

In my case, the macarons rule the photoshoot session. The macarons are cracking right before my eyes when I took this's a sign that I need to wrap up the shoot. 

I am experimenting on food styling. I like how most food cookbooks and magazines abroad are styled. They are kind of whimsy and fresh. So I followed my food styling direction from that. I am satisfied with the result, but I am more satisfied after I partake the colorful macarons. 

Macarons are a Parisian pastry. They are so famous that these colorful sweets are featured in almost all Paris travel photos I've seen. I am so happy that I do not have to go to Paris to enjoy them. I first saw these macarons at the Fudge cafe in Banilad, Mandaue. Then, I had heard of the Macarons Tango Cafe at OsmeƱa Blvd, Cebu and that's where I got these goodies. I got the mango, mint chocolate, coffee, chocolate, and strawberry flavors, although there are more available flavors at the cafe. The buttercream/jam filling tastes like "pastillas" with a thinner consistency and non-milky taste. The cookies, which sandwich the filling, are soft and airy. My first taste experience was definitely good and it satisfied my curiosity. Each cute macaron comes with a P40 price, but you may also get the box of six or box of twelve which comes with a discounted price.
