THE ORIGINAL FRENCH MACARON = NO FILLING
James Price’s dad bought this 17th century Secret Recipe for French Macarons when he was 11 years old, and James has been making it ever since in his New Hampshire bakery. They named it St. Julien Macaroons in homage to the original from St. Emilion, France.
ST. JULIEN MACAROONS
Made with almond paste, which gives it a moist, chewy crumb, and a wonderful almond marzipan intensity. St. Julien Macaroons is 1 of 3 bakeries in the world that is making these Original French Macarons.
Bakeries in the medieval towns of Nancy, France (Macarons des Soeurs 1793), and Saint Emilion (Nadia Fermigia, successor of Madame Blanchez), were and are today still making traditional macarons as SINGLE almond cookies – no filling.
Since 1620, the Nuns of Saint Emilion had been baking these authentic French Macarons … 341 years before Pierre Herme was born.
The colorful modern double-macaron with-a-filling is a later Paris invention. A Tale of Two Macarons.
