On Friday, Virginia of Paris Through My Lens mentioned that there is such a thing as “Macaron Day” (yummee – March 20). Little did I know that the day after I would be facing a “Macaron Meadow” at the Urbis Design Day display of the De Longhi Group (coffee machines, kitchen machines, etc). I think it would have been impolite to run off with any of the flowers in the display, but you were encouraged to sample the macarons – you could even get a psychoanalysis of your colour choice! (So if you did not get it right the first time, you had to taste the colour that matched your profile better…) An example from many of my attempts: “Searching for the purest looking treat, you chose to avoid the crowds and instead opt for a clean culinary canvas, Simplicity at its finest is your saviour.” Smooth words indeed!
(My tribute to the macaron comes 2 days late.)
