My dear friend Delite once asked a Cafetto barista "Will this cookie change my life?" He gazed into the bakery case and said frankly, "probably not."
Today I have Cocoa & Fig to thank for a life-changing salted caramel macron. No joke. I wish I could go back to the moment in my life when I was eating it. I tried a big pistachio macron in Brussels about a year ago, and it went in the garbage. Because somehow, it tasted like garbage.
Thanks, also, to the Cocoa & Fig website for clearing up my confusion surrounding coconut macaroons and french macrons. I wondered about that.
