A few months back I announced on Facebook that I had never had a French macaroon. I was ridiculed for my confession and soon realized I needed to rectify the situation. Like immediately.
After much deliberation with friends, I found out that I needed to be very selective about where I go for my very first macaroon. I took everyone’s recommendations and then continued my research on Yelp. I did discover the best spots were in San Francisco, but in order to avoid the commute, we opted for a more local bakery that did not disappoint, Pamplemousse Patisserie et Café.
This was one sweet date night! I have to admit – I was a skeptic at first. Let’s face it, I’m a chocolate chip cookie kind of girl. But after biting into that macaroon, it was like love at first bite.
So the moral of the story is this – if you’re in need of a date night idea – find a local bakery and enjoy some macaroons. But even better, think of something that you’ve never had and go try it together. It could end up being one sweet adventure!
