To bring an original dessert to your friends or to delight your family members, this lavender macarons recipe is perfect. From New York to Tokyo, macaron enthusiasts from all around the world envy us for these delicate French pastries. Nowadays, this quintessentially French pastry originated in Italy. It was thanks to the indulgence of Catherine de Medici in the 16th century that the French discovered these delightful colorful treats.
Macarons are meant to be enjoyed in one bite, and if they still hold a special place in the display cases, it's no coincidence. These savory pastries are both light and melting. They bring joy to everyone, and no one can resist the temptation of biting into one, or even two, after a hearty family meal.
Moreover, macarons allow for the expression of the creativity of the person preparing them. This recipe allows for the association of new flavors through its crispy biscuit and creamy ganache. Thus, lavender macarons are among those that surprise, both with their pretty purple color and their floral flavor.
Prepared with quality ingredients, the richness of the Provencal terroir is expressed through this refined pastry. The Lavandula angustifolia essential oil from our family estate, Château du Bois, is classified AOC. Its unique taste wonderfully enhances this recipe by allowing floral and herbal notes to emerge in a truly original way.
