The Best Macarons in Dubai

Seeing that I’m not an expert in macarons I enlisted the help of an undercover macaron connoisseur. His identity will remain anonymous to protect his life and hence most importantly the knowledge of macarons he holds.

What is a Macaron

A macaron is composed of 2 meringue based cookies filled with ganache or jam.

What Makes a Divine Macaron

-        The meringue based cookie should be smooth, effortlessly easy to bite into and instantly dissolves in your mouth.

-        The filling should be smooth and firm. When you bite into the macaron nothing should shoot out.

-        And obviously the taste

The Competition

W e have shortlisted the potential bests to Laduree and Fauchon. 4 basic and to 2 wild card flavors were selected from each shop and evaluated.

Key

-        Divine Macaron: One is never enough

-        Meh: It’s good but you’ll just finish it cause you bit into it

-        Obscene: Can’t even finish the one

Fauchon

Vanilla Divine Oh my
Raspberry Obscene It was too sweet – I couldn’t finish my bite let alone the macaron
