Nut-free pumpkin macaron from the Macaron Parlour’s new bricks n’ mortar shop

Nut-free pumpkin macaron from The Macaron Parlour's new shop

First look: The Macaron Parlour team of  pastry chefs Christina Ha and Simon Tung have opened a bricks and mortar store on 111 St. Marks Place.

I tried a nut-free seasonal pumpkin macaron and felt compelled to report how good it was.  I was expecting some kind of stand-in for a real, almond meal based macaron, but instead I got a 100% legit, 100% gourmet, macaron with no kooky texture or flavor!  It features a dark and white chocolate and pumpkin ganache with pumpkin pie-style spices.  Christina said she “just used ground pumpkins seeds instead of almond  flour”.  It didn’t take her long to nail the recipe–happily noting “It worked pretty well the [very] first time!”  I guess if you study macarons with Pierre Herme you learn a few things!  Who knew?  A full report on my visit to their shop will follow shortly.
