MakMak macarons

Sometimes the surprise factor gets ironed out of Christmas, with so many things done on repeat mode from the year before (and the year before that). So a jolt of the new is a welcome schedule change.

Thankfully, MakMak refreshes its line-up each season and has just introduced Ginger Caramel, Pavlova, Gianduja and the holiday-resonant Christmas Pudding & Custard to its range.

I’m slowly making my way through the box I just ordered (it’s hard to find appetite to spare during Christmas oversocialising season), but the Pavlova is a nice, coconutty consolation to losing claim to that dessert to New Zealand, while the Gianduja is so blazingly good, it might just shortcircuit all your senses: it’s nut-flecked, utterly chocolate-lavish and hiding a prized macadamia right in the middle. If someone can induct Gianduja macarons into the Christmas tradition (booting out boring puddings, perhaps), the holidays would be mammothly better. In the meantime, I’m happy to start my own custom by default …

MakMak is now available at a range of stockists, including Via Del Corso in Westfield Sydney, Baffi & Mo in Redfern, Cafe Lounge in Surry Hills, Da Piccolo at The Marriott Hyde Park, Le Depot in Ultimo and Kantine in Surry Hills. You can also order a box of 12 for $25 directly from the company. Head to the website to find out more.

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.


This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
