A macaroon is a type of light, baked confection, described as either small cakes or meringue-like cookies depending on their consistency.  But the macaroon I am talking about today is the ones from Adriano Zumbo.

Adriano Zumbo is a patissier who is now a celebrity chef who has his own show on SBS and appears occasionally as a guest judge in Master Chef and he is the macaroon master.

The first time I tasted his macaroons, I was in food heaven and now I will never eat any other macaroons. They come in vibrant colours and just melt in the mouth. They comes in a variety of flavours like almond, almond butternut crunch, coconut caramel,  coconut jelly, coffee coconut meringue, apple, cream cheese mousse, summer pudding, peach bellini, strawberry and balsamic , pineapple coconut, chupachup, toasted marshmallow, burnt toast & butter flavour, vegemite sourdough, blue cheese & pear flavour and many more.

What could possibly be better than yummy Zumbaron? A chocolate covered one, which they called ‘Chocarons’. I know they are full of a lot of sugar and fat but I can’t resist one when I see it  🙂
