Francois Payard is a household name for most bakers. I've seen him, on Throwdown with Bobby Flay, making his holiday Buche De Noel chocolate/cake log. But what actually got me to go to his bakery was the French macaroon icecream sandwich. Even though French macaroons have taken Manhattan by storm, most people upstate have no idea what it is. They have really no relation to their coconut counterparts. Light airy crunchy disks made from almond flower filled with different jellies and creams. Most recognizable by their rediculious colors. Well this is 2 huge squares of macaroon filled with intensely flavor housemade icecream. They offer pistachio/raspberry, coconut/mango, strawberry/cheesecake, or chocolate. I opted for pistachio rasp and it was amazing. A must try. The flavors in the icecream where so intense and the outer macaroon was crunchy. If they were closer I'd be in trouble. My wife is super jealous she didn't get to try one. Cant wait to bring her here.
