The talks about macarons continued and I started a conversation with Carly of Kitchening with Carly. I decided to place an order and have them deliver to me. Carly graciously offered me the price of $12 for 6 macarons and waived the regular $10 delivery charge (a fee normally charged for orders of less than 4-dozen macarons).

It was even better when meeting Carly in person as she delivered the macarons to me on a Friday afternoon.

Carly gave me the option to choose my own assortment of macarons, so this is what my assorted box included:

  • Pistachio Macaron with Pistachio Butter Cream
  • Raspberry Macaron with Passionfruit Butter Cream
  • Lemon Macaron with a tangy Lemon Curd Filling
  • Chocolate Macaron with Dark Chocolate Ganache
  • Raspberry Macaron with Balsamic Butter Cream
  • Cassis Macaron with Jam Filling

Overall the macarons were great and they all had the proper, chewy texture to it. I decided to include a pistachio one because I wanted to re-discover my love for pistachio. And this macaron made me believe in pistachio-flavoured items again. It was super nutty, the pistachio flavour was very prominent, all the while the almond taste was enhanced.

According to JN and based on its website and Twitter/Facebook, Soirette has a very interesting collection of macaron flavours. And they continue to introduce new flavours so customers will keep coming back for more. Examples include Pink Peppercorn, Rose, Malibu, White Truffle and Pink Himalayan Salt. The store also specializes in tea, so there have been a few flavours that are infused with tea leaves. Knowing that I enjoy fruity flavours and am willing to try new things, JN picked out two vibrant-coloured macarons (which also happen to be the colours of our company logo haha!), and they were two very interesting flavour combinations.
