Since my wife Paula and I moved to Scotland over 25 years ago we have found it hard to come across a perfectly made macaron, one of our favourite delicacy.
In 2013 we decided that instead of continuing our search we would start to produce our own!
Since we established ‘Chardon Macarons’ we have gone from making a few to sell as part of our dessert restaurant menu to now making thousands a week. We now sell throughout our restaurants, our deli, at markets around Scotland, and for wholesale to private companies.
Finally, the search is over for a perfectly made macaron!
What does Chardon Mean?
The name ‘Chardon’ translates to ‘Thistle’. We wanted to dedicate these to the wonderful country we call our home, and what more fitting than the French name for the beautiful ‘Flower of Scotland’.
I spent lots of time testing my recipe and methods to get the perfect combination of a smooth crispy shell softening down to a melt in your mouth ganache at the centre. The recipe has now been passed on to our in house Patissier who experiments with many different flavours to always have something different for our customers to choose from.
We will always have at least 10 different flavours on display at one time. Apart from the diversity of flavours, what makes our macarons unique is that we fill them generously with intense flavours ganache using only the best of ingredients, the chocolate of course, nuts, spices and fruits. We believe ours are bigger with more filling than any others we seen on the markets.
