Mad Mac : Macaron sighting in NYC

Not entirely new to the macaron scene (only new to me), Mad Mac has supposedly been taking NYC by storm since 2006 and has received a lot of favourable press over the past three years.  The two pastery chefs behind the brand have been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, Gourmet Magazine, Daily Candy just to name a few.

My question is, has anyone tasted these?  How do they match up to some of the other great names? Next time I am in NYC, I’m tracking one down to sample!

For more information on Mad Mac, the NIBBLE (a magazine about specialty foods) wrote about the brand and honoured it as a Top Pick of the Week in their magazine.  To read the NIBBLE review please click here

  1. Since you used the photo from our review of Mad Mac Macaroons, you might also want to include a link to the review, which tells you how they taste:

    They were a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week, which is an honor, given the number of fine products we write about each year. The review also includes a link to our article on the history of the macaroon; you can access it directly here:

    For a product that that can be sent through the mail, they are quite good indeed; although the finest I have ever had, in the U.S. or France, are made by chef Paul Liebrandt (who is peripatetic, and currently, I believe, in Philadelphia). However, they are so fragile, you can’t even take them home from the restaurant. They are ethereal fantasies that don’t travel more than ten feet from his kitchen.

      Hi Karen,

      Thank you for your note.
      Sorry it has taken me a week to get back to you.
      I love your magazine- it has provided me with a wealth of knowledge on food over this past year when I first stumbled across it.
      I appreciate you taking the time to drop me a comment and I have updated my post accordingly.

      Looking forward to more info on macaron and other under-appreciated foods!
