TGIF!

Candace, one of my readers, and I share a mutual love for all-things-French. She is currently planning her next jaunt to Paris, and I've sent her a list of some of my favorite "must-eats" in the City of Lights.

Aside from a cone topped with an ample scoop of Berthillon's Salted-Caramel ice cream, I told her, rather adamantly, that her first stop, post-customs must be at Laduree, for their life-changing macarons. Her reply? "I just discovered that macarons are not what I thought. Not a single flake of coconut in them...Sounds yummy."

For those of you out there that, upon hearing the word "macaron," imagine the overly-sweet, coconut "clump" produced by Manischewitz, have a looksie at this video, courtesy of Candace: http://vimeo.com/3676793. Clearly, the "macaroon" and the "macaron" could not be more different.

Apparently, macarons are predicted to be one of 2011's biggest food trends. I, for one, could not be happier.

Please stop saying ‘macaroon’ when you mean ‘macaron’

Today in ‘really? This is what you’re moaning about?’: I am so bloody fed up of people saying ‘macaroon’ when they mean ‘macaron’.

Every time it happens, it feels like nails on a blackboard.

I try to subtly repeat back the word pronounced correctly, ‘macaron’, to get the heathen mispronouncing a delicious treat to mirror the way I’m saying it.

It doesn’t work. They forge onwards, macarooning this way and that.

If they’ve said it enough times to push me over the edge, I explain, gently, that it’s actually pronounced ‘macaron’. Not ‘macaroon’.

I’m then usually looked at like I’m being a pretentious food snob.

You say chorizo however you please. Don’t worry about calling snails escargot. Eat your steak well done (but don’t you f***ing dare cover it in ketchup).

The macaron/macaroon mixup bugs me because macarons and macaroons are two different words signifying two entirely different things.

    Good day, dear colleagues and friends. I spent a lot of time looking for a good blog on similar topics, but many of them did not suit me with the lack or lack of information, stupid interfaces, and so on. Now I found what I wanted and decided to add my own comment. I would like, dear sirs administrators, that your blog continues to develop at such a pace, the number of people grows steadily, and the pages become more and more. I remembered the address of your blog for a long time and I hope to enter the ranks of the most active users. Many thanks to everyone who listened to me and took a minute of free time to read this commentary. Thanks again. Vitaly.

    So it is infinitely possible to discuss..

    This wonderful thought will come in handy.
