Making my own Macarons is on my Recipe Bucket List. In the meantime, I'm always game to treat myself to a bakery made macarons. Alas, there aren't many bakeries in my hometown who makes them.
The enclosed card says these can be refrigerated for up to a week. Are you kidding? These were gone in two days, and I think my son ate the majority of them.
Founded by Chef/Restaurateur/Entrepreneur Joel Dondis and pastry Chef Tariq Hanna in 2007, Sucré has quickly become a cherished local landmark in a city with a rich culinary history.
Sucré offers guests a variety of confectionary delights, all made in their New Orleans based confection studio. From French macaroons to salted caramel cupcakes to petit red velvet cakes - each offering is confectionary perfection. Gelato is homemade using first-cut Louisiana cane sugar, milk from local dairies and the finest ingredients. Artisan chocolates are made celebrating local flavors such as the Blangé - a white chocolate ganache with banana and rum enrobed in white gourmet chocolate or the Meuniére - brown butter folded into white chocolate ganache enrobed in dark chocolate or the Chicory - New Orleans' favorite coffee folded into a dark chocolate ganache enrobed in dark chocolate. Hot drinking chocolate features homemade marshmallows flavored with Tahitian vanilla. Visitors to Sucré can stay to enjoy dessert or they can take home their own chocolate gifts.
If you’re in the mood to try some of the world’s best chocolate almond toffee, let Sucré treat you to its delectable crunchy butter almond toffee, enrobed in dark chocolate and adorned with delicate roasted almond slivers. Go ahead; indulge your sweet tooth – without the guilt! Discover what many New Orleans locals already know: Sucré Southern Candied Pecans are an irresistible treat for any day of the week. Throw your own unforgettable Mardi Gras party, wherever you live in the United States! Just be sure that whoever gets the invite knows where to order their own authentic, delicious king cake & macarons... right here at Sucré.
I would love to try their famous King Cake. Voted "A Favorite" By The Times Picayune 2012 King Cake Contest and 2011 "BEST" King Cake by a Washington Post blind taste test. Sucre's signature buttery danish pastry is sweetened by cinnamon and raw cane sugar then folded with a light layer of creole cream cheese. (Serves 8-10 people.)
