La Maison du Chocolat: The Gift of Receiving

I’m convinced that Nelson was born with a gift – a gift of knowing exactly what… well, gift (sorry, pun seriously not intended) to get me. Every single birthday, Christmas, just-because-you’re-awesome (because I am) present Nelson has gotten me over the past many many years has been – simply put – perfect.

Take the last present he got me for example. A small box of… wait for it… La Maison du Chocolat macarons. Half a dozen sitting so prettifully in a clear box, tied with the classic deep brown ribbon, waiting to be eaten. Perfectly crunchy shells with a bit of chewiness and the perfect ratio of ganache – not toothachingly sweet but just enough to put a giant smile on your face for the rest of the day. In my personal opinion – the best macarons so far in the city (yes, even beating out JPH).

Thank you hun. You’re the bestest!
