Chocolate of the Moment… Homemade macarons by the lovely Annapet Isidoro! (Don’t miss the three yummy photos above to scroll thru…) So, last week. a little angel tweeted me out of the blue, wishing me a Happy Macaron Day. I almost blew it off, thinking she was a spammer. Boy, am I glad I delved deeper instead. Turns out @annapetisidoro lives near me and is a very talented and passionate macaron baker. Long story short, we ended up having coffee yesterday and she gifted me not one, but two beautiful boxes of her delectable chocolate macarons (no, autocorrect, I’m not talking about macaroons!). Annapet is as lovely in person as she appears online. I was impressed to learn that she goes out of her way to use organic ingredients for her macarons…from the eggs to the almond flour to the cream…and as little (organic) sugar as possible. Also, she buys special boxes that are made in the USA, containing recycled materials. I love people who go to such extents to be eco-friendly! Annapet currently takes special orders from local people and is looking for commercial kitchen space so that she can officially go into business. Check out her Facebook page for more info and mouth-watering photos! Oh, did I mention how delicious and perfect her macaroons are? They. Are. The. BEST!
