We took possession of the lovely box of goodies and (after our meal at Leon) opened the box when we got back to the hotel. The macaroons were packed in cellophane bags adorned with pink ribbon bearing labels. Also inside were the promised scones (two packs) and Sous Chef J was most impressed with their appearance.
It was agreed to try a macaroon each and save the rest for when we were home. The macaroons were moist, almondy and dusted in icing sugar... the ingredients are listed as Almonds, sugar, egg and essential oil of bitter almonds. They were delicious!
When we got home Sous Chef J was keen to get his hands on the scones. This is what he did...
