It’s the High Holy Days and patissier François Payard introduced a Rosh Hashanah macarons collection for the occasion. Macaroons are typically associated with another Jewish holidays, Passover, but these are proper French macarons that play on traditional Rosh Hashanah foods: apple, honey and raisins.
A common greeting on Rosh Hashanah is Shana tovah u’metukah. That’s Hebrew for “a good and SWEET new year.” I think it’s important to take it seriously. And start the new year with many many sweet macarons!
François Payard’s Rosh Hashanah macarons collection (with an assortment of green apple and honey macarons and raisin pecan macarons) is available at his Manhattan patisseries for $29 for a 12-piece box. While you’re there, pick up an apple honey cake too 😉
