Strawberry Fest: The All-New Strawberry Macaron
At Sucré, we are dedicated to constant improvement and understand that the road to perfection is a never-ending one. We aim to deliver the most delicious treats to our loyal customers, and with Strawberry Fest in mind, what better time to give our classic favorite Strawberry Macaron a sprucing up?
First off, what is Strawberry Fest? From March through May, Ponchatoula strawberries, (the tastiest of strawberries, in our humble opinion) come into season. Part of Sucré’s mission is to serve decadent desserts centered around fresh local ingredients. The plump, juicy, sweet Ponchatoula Strawberry is a Louisiana delicacy – it’s the state fruit! – and Ponchatoula has earned the title of “Strawberry Capital of the World.” To celebrate this local staple, Sucré offers a variety of strawberry-themed entremets, from a fairly traditional Strawberry Mascarpone Éclair to an exciting and refreshing Strawberry Lychee Berry Verrine. There’s a strawberry treat for everyone!
This year, the Strawberry Macaron got a makeover, and she’s tastier than ever. Oprah called Sucré’s Strawberry Macaron “almost too pretty to eat” in O Magazine, and she couldn’t have said it better! We’ve made a few changes to what we call our “Southern Belle” of macarons.
Prior to this year’s Stawberry Fest, Sucré’s Strawberry macarons were filled with a buttercream mousseline mixed with homemade Ponchatoula strawberry preserves. Chef Tariq Hanna, always the perfectionist, has diligently worked to introduce a sweet cocktail of fillings that perfectly compliment and enhance the Ponchatoula strawberry’s deliciousness, and of course, he added a little glitter to the mix! The new and improved sparkly pink shells are filled with a swirl of white chocolate, strawberry ganache, and a center of fresh strawberry jam. Sounds delicious? Trust us, it is!
As we bid farewell to the beloved “old” Strawberry Macaron, we embrace new traditions and always look toward celebrating classic favorites in exciting and different ways. Our chefs are always on the lookout for interesting new recipes to push the boundaries, so stay tuned for more innovative sweet treats from Sucré!
Easter: The All-New Easter Macaron Collection
At Sucré, we like to change things up and offer seasonal collections available at different times of the year. Our chefs create macarons specifically for many of holidays we celebrate, and these range from Christmas to Mother’s Day. What better way to celebrate than with a limited edition macaron? They make great gifts that are best enjoyed with friends and family. This Easter, we’ve come up with two new Easter Macarons to add to our Easter Macaron Collection!
To accompany the crowd-pleasing Carrot Cake Macaron (gluten free carrot cake blended into a cream cheese buttercream), our chefs have come up with a Coconut Pineapple Macaron as well as a Meyer Lemon Macaron. We think you’ll like these new additions!
The Coconut Pineapple Macaron comes in an appropriately brilliant shade of blue. It is a creamy coconut ganache filled with pineapple marmalade. These 2 flavors are paired perfectly together for a macaron that is guaranteed to be one of your favorites.
The Meyer Lemon Macaron is a tart lemon ganache surrounding a center of Meyer lemon curd. It’s quite the treat for lemon lovers! It comes in an inviting yellow hue and tops off this pastel-covered collection perfectly.
Lemon curd, pineapple marmalade, and cream cheese buttercream make for a complete family of fillings available in our Easter Collection. All of these Macarons have a strong personality that shine on their own. Together, they are simply irresistible. Their vibrant colors make for a gorgeous collection perfect for Easter! These are only available until Easter, so get your hands on them while you can!
