Happy 4th of July from Mesdames des Macarons!
To celebrate, we've made a mildly geeky, but totally tasty new macaron flavor for you to try. Considering that macarons are French, a little research went into naming the macaron something that represents how the French helped America win her independence.
During the American War for Independence, the French supplied American soldiers with weapons and ammunition. These supplies were used to win the Battle of Saratoga in 1777. This battle is considered the turning point of the war, in which American colonists won their right to independence and freedom.
The most notable gift among the French weaponry was de Vallière cannon. Developed by Florent-Jean de Vallière, these cannons were the most accurate of its time and proved pivotal in the Battle of Saratoga.
So, just like de Vallière’s cannon, our Vallière Macarons are packed with a punch and sure to win you over! The shells are busting with the rich flavor of organic, freeze dried blueberries and strawberries, and then sandwiched together with our homemade butter cream frosting enriched with Gustare Coconut Balsamic Vinegar!
These macarons are for sale, starting today, at the Gustare store in Mashpee Commons, but until supplies last!
