French Macarons in Brentwood

OC Mutt | Dec 25, 2009 03:17 PM

I stumbled across French macarons at La Provence Patisserie in Brentwood gardens of all places. Having just returned from Paris and London and indulged in the world class macarons from Laduree and Pierre Herme, I was excited to find them available here. I have to admit that despite a very high bar that was set in Europe, these were pretty good. I sampled Hazelnut, Fleur de sel Caramel, Pistachio and Cherry rose. Pistachio was my favorite, Fleur de Sel Caramel had a great salty crust that I enjoyed, but all were delicious. At $1.95 each, they are reasonably priced (unlike those tiny little things I tried in a bakery in Culver City - can't remember the name but it was in the Helms building and they were tiny, tasteless and expensive). The flavors were spot on, the texture was a bit off at times but all in all, a great source for French macarons. It looks like they have a location in Beverly Hills as well.
