12 Treats & Sweets of Christmas

 

“On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me, Five Golden Rings.”

Just when we thought we were done with the birds and on to fine jewelry, we actually are not – the “five golden rings” in this carol refers to five ringed-neck pheasants, another popular tasty bird for feasts and celebrations.  Still, let’s skip this course and go straight to what’s on the dessert menu – our classic French macarons, or for those chocoholics out there, we also have chocolate-covered French macarons. Tracing back to the 1700’s, French macarons have been a delicacy once experienced, never forgotten. Luscious cream or rich mousseline filling is surrounded by cushions of delicate meringue. You can buy them for your true love or keep them for yourself.
