Makmak Lamington Macarons

Gold stars to MakMak for coming up with an excellent way to exercise your sweet tooth on Australia Day: lamington macarons. They come in these very gratifying flavours: Milo (yes!), Cream and Jam and Cream (the ones with the bonus red macarons on the side). They’re a limited-edition range, sadly, so you can either hurry and get these brilliantly chewy, choc-dense, coconut-flaked macarons now (because they’re gone once the public holiday hits) or flash-forward until next year when they make an appearance again. I say: hurry.

  1. Jam and cream – too cute!!! There’s a bit of a lamington craze this Australia Day – I’m definitely going to get in on the action!

    Milo macarons. Too good to be true. Might have to get patriotic and try and replicate them in London.

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.
