Macarons from Europea

I must confess - not having eaten macarons before and not having a sweet tooth, I didn't quite understand what was the fuss all about. Yesterday, after a visit to the Notre-dame Basilica, I was strolling along the streets of old Montreal when I came across a gourmet boutique shop operated by restaurant Europea. And there in the windows, were these lovely macarons sitting all a-pretty, tempting one to just buy all the different flavours (pictured above: 3 types of chocolate, apple and caramel, lemon, and passion fruit). One bite and I was hooked...light as air, crispy and soft at the same time...I only wished I had enough stomach space for more!
