I have been a busy bee this past week.  Catering dinner for a rock band, and not having a minute to relax.  When the french food celebration presented itself at Elysian Park, well how could I resist?  It was my first day off and I was ready to explore.  I found myself going from booth to booth seeking out my options.  Should I have the chicken mushroom crepe or the nutella crepe?  I settled on the chicken mushroom crepe, as if one wasn’t enough it was so good I had to order another.  With a semi full belly I knew I needed to satisfy a sweet tooth.  That’s when the heavens pointed me to Les Macarons Duverger….. OH MY YA YA’S. In one word. SPECTACULAR!  I polished off a pistachio macaron, salted caramel macaron, and blueberry lavender macaron within a couple of delicious minutes. French macarons are one of my favorite treats, and for a long time you could not find them here in Los Angeles, not until the last couple of years have they started to pop up more and more.  Les Macarons Duverger definitely are one of the best I have tasted here in the states.  Perfect in every way and gluten free.  Turns out they are now being sold at farmers markets all over town, and some fancy gourmet markets too.  That’s music to my ears…. I now know where to buy my macarons.   🙂
