Mademoiselle Macaron's 1st Birthday5/19/2015 12:15:00 pm
I was invited along to a blogger event at a macaron shop in Edinbugh's West End - Mademoiselle Macaron - to celebrate the cute little shop turning one year old. The owner of the shop, Rachel, couldn't have been lovelier as she made her way around the bunch of bloggers chatting about her passion.
The shop itself is very adorable, and was decorated with balloons and bunting, adding a very homely feel to it. There's an area in the front where you can buy some macarons or cakes and have a drink, and a section in the back where she leads workshops. Because there were so many of us, we spilled into both of these areas, although I tended to stay around the table where all the macarons were laid out.
The macarons were AMAZING. Never have I even considered trying a savoury macaron but the details that they added to make them all look absolutely delicious made it impossible to resist. After trying them all (and going back for seconds) I think I've come to the conclusion that the macarons with cream cheese, rocket and parma ham were my favourite, although it's hard to pick a favourite when there's options like gin & tonic, raspberry & jam, scottish tablet and mini burgers. (YES, mini burger macarons- such an ingenious idea!)
While working my way around the table, with a glass of prosecco in hand, I chatted away to lots of other Edinburgh bloggers. I love events like this where I can walk in - without knowing anyone else there - and still have a blast. It's always so lovely getting to chat away to people who have the same hobby as I do. It was also fascinating talking to Rachel, and she explained how her love for macarons came about, as well as her love for France.
I thoroughly enjoyed this event, and can't thank Mademoiselle Macaron for inviting me to celebrate in style. I can't wait to head back over and try more of their fantastic flavours!
