Marron Glacees

moh | Nov 30, 2007 09:40 AM

We stopped off at Marche Adonis on Sources. As well as having the usual selection of wonderful baklava, I picked up some Marron Glacee from the counter. They are wrapped individually in gold foil, and sold individually. Oh yum.... They are very nice quality and if you are a fan of these, run and get some!!! Much better than the ones you buy in boxes. I usually buy mine at Festin du Babette, but I spoke to Martine, and she is not ordering them this year. She is worried about the construction on St. Denis, and is scaling back on orders for fear that business is going down. This is a shame, as her marron glacees are always well-chosen. She is very honest about the quality of her marron glacees, so I trust her judgement. When they are substandard, she tells me, and often will not even stock them. And when they are good, well!!!!! The ones I just tried at Marche Adonis definitely measure up. Very tender, really delicate chestnut flavour, not overwhelmingly sweet. I love these things.
