Emerald Deli macarons

The Emerald Deli at the South Melbourne markets produces very tall macarons.  Too tall really, as there is too much air between the crisp outer shell and the meagre amount of soft biscuit underneath.

But the flavours, oh the flavours.  The flavours are good, intense and exactly as advertised.  They are hampered somewhat by some awkward decorating - the mint and orange macarons are indicated by child like swirls of food colouring through the biscuit.

Also, though it is hard to see here, the macarons have a sheen, as though they have been sprinkled with edible dust.

  1. If only they were as soft and mushy as Laurent macarons...
