2011 Resolution: Eat More Macarons!

Did anyone else make a New Year’s Resolution to eat more macarons? J’en doute, but please humour me for the sake of my post 😉 I mean, you could very well have put eating more macarons on your resolution list. They are after all a top food trend for 2011 as predicted by Epicurious and more locally by DC’s very own Metrocurean

To kick off 2011 in Parisian style Artfully Chocolate Kingsbury Confections in Alexandria is hosting an open house tasting of macarons by Michel Patisserie. People often ask me where they can find the best macarons in Washington, or at least anything comparable to what you would find in Paris. For the past two years, I have always answered that Michel Giaon of Michel Patisserie makes the best in town – though Jacques Poulain’s, sold at Cacao and Puro Cafe have grown on me recently. Michel’s parisian macarons are sold at ACKC, whose DC location is just a few blocks away from my office… how convenient!  If you can’t make it to Laduree anytime soon (that whole having to get on an international flight thing is a bummer, I know), you can at least hop on the metro and head to ACKC’s Alexandria location to taste the colourful and delicate creations of a pastry chef who has trained there!

Artfully Chocolate Kingsbury Confections‘s Alexandria shop is located at 2003A Mount Vernon Avenue, a few streets away from Cheesetique and a short walk from the Braddock Road metro station. The open house tasting is scheduled on January 6th, from 5:30 to 8pm. Resolve to go!
