I remember a fellow blogger speaking very highly of Kee's Chocolates, so when we were looking for a snack downtown during a shoot I had to try it. We did a French Macaroon tasting. Erik, Jeremy and I tried Truffle Oil, Sesame, Ginger Peach and Cassis. The Truffle Oil was amazing. The truffle oil flavor was there, very subtle and combined curiously with the sweet chocolate. The Sesame flavor took a moment to appear, but when it did, it resembled a Japanese rice cookie. The Ginger Peach did not have a distinct flavor but was tasty. I thought maybe by that point my palate needed a rest, but I never give my palate a rest so I dove right into the Cassis, which was gushing with amazing berry flavor. All the macaroons had a really crisp light texture and they were room temperature on the outside, but when I bit into them them the chocolate filling was somehow cool and really refreshing. Truffle and Cassis were the winners by a log shot. Jeremy Parker (AKA tha Pumpsta) styled and hand modeled.
