The macaroon from Amiens and its little touch of fruit

Macaroons from Amiens | / CC-BY-NC-SA

Let me introduce macaroons from Amiens (Northern France)!

Made with Valencias almonds, honey, sugar eggs whites and almond oil, the recipe dates back to the 16th century.

The difference with other French macaroons? The little touch of fruits jam (especially apricot)!

This recipe is made by Trogneux mother company, located on place de la Cathédrale since 1834: 2 millions of macaroons were sold in 2011!

In 1992, it was awarded by the Grand prix de la meilleure spécialité régionale ("Award of the Best Regional Speciality").
