Last week, the Canadian Opera Company celebrated its annual Operanation fundraiser, and I was particularly excited for the limited edition Nadège Patisserie macarons created in honour of the event.
I went behind the scenes with Chef Nadège in Toronto's Nadège Patisserie kitchen to get up close to her bite-sized creation. With the helping hand of Alexander Neef, the General Director of the Canadian Opera Company, she gave a step-by-step demo of the Sweet Revenge macaron, named after the opera party's theme.
As if watching Nadège mix, decorate and explain her creation wasn't cool enough, I was treated to a macaron tasting when it was all said and done!
Starting off with sweet notes of cherry and dark chocolate, the Sweet Revenge's hint of chili kicked in after just a few seconds. One word: delicious.
Want to get your hands on these tiny treats? Head down to Nadège Patisserie (both the Queen St. West or Rosedale location are carrying them for a limited time).
