An engagement (not mine) & macarons

Two of my very closest friends got engaged to each other last week in Central Park. It's pretty awesome, as Frenchie and I were there to witness the beginning of the relationship and have seen both of them grow closer. Their wedding is scheduled for 2013 and I can't wait to help with the planning! And as a testament to how awesome of friends they are, they even thought of us during their engagement celebration and picked up fresh macarons for us from La Duree! Aren't we lucky? Special delivery from Paris, by way of New York, to Texas. They look lovely and quite season appropriate in their spring tones.  I'm not going to ever see macarons again without thinking of the lucky couple and their special day.

So tell me, lovely bloggers, is it pronounced "mac-a-rons" or "mac-a-roons"? What do they say in France?

  1. As a Ladurée addict, I've made several day trips to NYC to load up on macarons at the new store. We're talking a box of 24 for just moi. And it's definitely pronounced "maca-rons", not "maca-roons" in France. Macaroon implies a coconut lump (still delicious!) but a French macaron is what Ladurée sells. As it happens, I'll be in Paris in under two months and the first place I'm going after checking into our hotel is the Ladurée on the Champs Élysées. I just wish they weren't so expensive! I can't complain, they are my favorite treat. Enjoy!

  4. yum!!!! I do love a good macaron. And the proper way of pronouncing it is macaron (with a short o) Only Americans say it as macaroon :)

  5. Hmmmmmm I personally pronounce them mac-a-roons but being in NZ we dont have much influence in terms of the French language besides those already established....anyway wah! What a wonderful little gift from the recently engaged. Such a very sweet idea and definately Spring-like. This would be a wonderfl way to send out wedding invitations too ^_^

  6. Yum! I love macaroons!

    I pronounce them as macarooooooons. Haha. I just like to drag out that last part of the word. I wasn't always a big fan of them - partly because the first one I tried was a rose flavored one - which in theory sounded great, but tasted like my grandmother's soap or at best, a bubble bath... but I moved on to bigger and better ones and am now hooked. :)

    Congrats to your friends' on their engagement!

  8. I believe they are pronounced MAC-A-RONEs, despite the way they are written! Just asked my friend (a Paris FANATIC)!!!!!

    At any rate, they look delicious and I wish I was eating some RIGHT NOW!!!

  16. Hmm. . . interesting. Makes sense if they really are pronounced mac-a-rones, it would come out mac-a-roons with a lovely American accent. :)
