Modern French Macarons
Opera Cafe & Patisserie
9254 Scranton Rd

During my previous visit to Opera Patisserie I had inquired about their modern macarons which I had seen on their website. I was told they didn't have any that day and actually hadn't had them for a while. The modern macarons had caught my attention because of the beautiful colors and the flavors:pistachio and raspberry; passion fruit and coconut; margarita and key lime; chocolate and cappuccino; and pecan caramel and cinnamon.
On a recent visit to Opera, I was surprised to see the modern macarons in their dessert display. Of course I had to get some! One box is $10 and contains two of each flavor. The outside was crispy and delicate and the inside was slightly chewy.
The flavor combinations worked well. I wasn't sure about how some of them would work out but I liked them all. And I like the designs on the macarons. One of these days I'm going to take on the challenge of making my own macarons.
