Well over a year ago when it was announced that the Grand Depart for the 2014 Tour de France was to pass by where I live I just knew I wanted to have a one-off market stall to sell my macarons.
I spent some time deliberating about what flavours to make and in the end I created 4 macarons each inspired by one of the four jerseys and flavoured with classic French fillings. I made: The green jersey (best sprinter)- maillot vert which was pistachio-pistache. The white jersey (best young ride) – maillot blanc which was vanilla-vanilla. The polka dot jersey (King of the Mountains)- maillot à pois rouges which was raspberry – frambois. The yellow jersey – maillot jeune (winners jersey) which was lemon – citron. I have had real fun designing and making these macarons and they sold really well amongst the huge crowds. It was anamazing day and one that I will never forget.
