And I say this with confidence. Oodles of it. For I (Poppy) have had macarons from Giselle Richardson and LET ME TELL YOU, Poppy Lovers, there is no going back.
The wizard behind it is the Very Clever Miss Giselle Richardson, who makes all the macarons herself, using her very own top secret recipe..but I can tell you that they are gluten free, made from the freshest British ingredients and are ridiculously melt-in-the-mouth-delicious. *Sigh*
Her delectable flavours are second to none and include favourites, (when I say favourites, I don’t mean mine personally as all of them are my favourite and that would take up too much room to write. Much like this sentence) which take their cues from our charming British heritage, such as Earl Grey, Lavender, Roasted Rhubarb, Cucumber, English Rose and Chocolate Orange…
WRB is leaping from strength to strength, so if Giselle isn’t manning her exceptionally popular weekly stall (there are queues) at Cabbages and Frocks Market in Marylebone, or delivering new scrummy stock to Spitalfields’ A.Gold or The De Beauvoir Deli Co in Islington, then she’s boxing up her macarons for lucky people’s parties, weddings and events. And at £1.50 a go, (or less if you order more than 10) there’s no reason in the world why we can’t all treat ourselves. Or our friends. Or ourselves, again.
They are, in all seriousness, (serious Poppy) some of the most delicious things I have ever tasted. They are so beautiful, delicate and light that I’m sure that fairies made them.**
So, I say it again. Think you’ve had macarons? Pah. You have NOT.
**Disclaimer: This is not me saying that Giselle is lying when she says she makes them. (Except I think she might be.)
