Blue French Macaron

Blue French Macaron

I have to follow-up on the previous post about my sister’s wedding favors. I finally have a photo to post of these fabulous French macarons in their clear boxes. The color was so saturated and they tasted so great! Thank you Maison Burdisso.


Marcus and I are so excited for my sister Aimee, of Deuce Creative fame. She will be married next week here in Houston and its going to be fabulous. Aimee and I were looking for a VERY last minute wedding takeaway for guests at the reception. Enter Jackie Burdisso of Maison Burdisso. She does gorgeous french-inspired foods and is famous around these parts for her French macarons. I met Jackie and first tasted her macarons at the Midtown Farmer’s Market┬álocated at T’afia, Monica Pope’s restaurant. The market features only the best of fresh produce and some prepared foods and cheeses. Jackie does her confections of perfection in a rainbow of colors, and her flavors are often exotic. She often has blueberry, blood orange and tiramisu as well as standbys like pistachio, coffee and vanilla bean.

The lightbulb came on to give a macaron as a favor for guests at Aimee’s wedding. But half the fun of French macarons is looking at them. So we came up with the idea to have an array of flavors and colors for guests, all in clear plastic boxes. When I spoke with Jackie she showed me the perfect size and it even has a white organza bow on top! Tres jolie. Now it’s just T minus 8 days till the wedding!
