French desserts are snacks made in France. The most famous in our opinion is macaron.
Macaron is a sweet meringue-based confection made with eggs, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food colouring. It is known as a French dessert, but in fact, macaron was invented by the Italians. And the specific origin of macarons, there are multiple versions. According to legend, one version is that some vegetarian nuns in the early days produced meringues baked with egg white and almond powder instead of meat, which is the prototype of macarons. Now its English name ‘Macaroon’ is derived from Italian ‘Maccarone’. During the French Revolution, the Catholic Church was suppressed by the revolutionaries, and the clergy were in a bad situation. The nuns secretly sold their macaroons for their livelihood, and gradually spread the macaroons to France. Another version is, in the middle of the 16th century, the nobleman of Florence- Catherine Medici, married the French King Henry II. Although he was in the royal family, he was married to his hometown after all, and the queen soon became sick with his hometown. So, follow the king’s chef to France to make the Macarons in his hometown, to win the Queen’s favor, since then this Italian-style dessert spread in France.
The origin of the Macarons
When Macaron was the first introduced to France, it was still very different from today’s macarons: it was just a single piece, without three-tire. After the macaroons arrived in France, especially after entering the 19th century, a large number of French chefs competed to make this dessert, and the single piece gradually became sandwich; at the same time, the imaginative French chefs also tried to add different fruits and jams, even coffee, chocolate to create colorful colors. Therefore, macaron is not only a kind of dessert or a kind of food, it also carries a culture.
