So Matt and I have been having a debate for several years now, that debate being: How is Macaron pronounced?
I know that the proper pronunciation is Maca-RON whereas Matt is completely set on pronouncing it “wrong” as Maca-ROON. We’ve done the research, and yes, a lot of people pronounce it Maca-ROON but it’s incorrect. From what I’ve found, that’s how most Americans pronounce it, but they’re French Macarons, not American, so therefore it’s Maca-RON. Maybe that makes me sound pretentious, but I believe that things should be pronounced accurately based on their origin.
It didn’t help that during a pressure test on MasterChef this past season, Gordon Ramsay pronounced it “roon”. That pretty much made my argument null and void in Matt’s eyes, but I’m sticking to my guns on this one. Anyways, you get the idea, we’ll probably fight about it until we’re dead.
So let’s get to why we’re celebrating this argument today. In all the years we’ve gone back and forth about it, neither of us have ever actually had a Macaron. When I came across La Petite Sucre, I knew her beautiful and delicious Macarons were the perfect thing to give to Matt for one of the 15 Days of Love.
Sometime’s it’s best to just agree to disagree, neither of us will be caving on this topic any time soon. Even though we disagree on how to pronounce the Macaron, we can definitely agree on how amazing they are. This morning was a new experience for us, sure we didn’t fly across the world or skydive, but we tried something new together. I think it’s important to try something new every day, have having someone special to do it with is the real gift.
In case you’re wondering or interested in ordering from La Petite Sucre, I ordered the Dark Chocolate, Vanilla Buttercream, and the Blackberry Macarons. Matt loved the Vanilla and I was pretty attached to the Blackberry, but they all tasted great!
