I'm what you might call a "tardy adopter" --someone who never quite manages to be on the cutting edge of, well, just about anything. Which is why I was thrilled to see yesterday's Wall Street Journal article about the newfound popularity of macarons, a treat I've been touting on this blog for a long, long time.
Upon reading more closely, however, I learned that macarons have already plummeted all the way from très chic to totalement déclassé especially since they're now selling them (quelle horreur!) at McDonald's in Paris.
Still, on balance, this is a good thing. On the negative side, I'm going to have to find some way (brain bleach?) to suppress this image of a macaron looking for all the world like a tiny hamburger. But it's awfully nice to know that next time I get a big mac(aron) attack while strolling in the general vicinity of the Paris Opera House, I'll be covered.
What are you craving today?
