You may have noticed that macarons, whether made in Hong Kong or in France, are rather expensive. Depending on where you buy them and who they were made by, the prices of macarons can go very high. The reason behind such exclusive pricing is that macarons aren't easy to make. The process involved in making macarons is time-consuming and even rather tricky. To add to that, the ingredients for the perfect macaron don't come by easily either. It's not that the ingredients are rare but they come at hefty prices as well. What makes the macaron so special is that it is both delicately made and eaten, a pastry fit for royalty.
The first macarons were baked and served almost 500 years ago by the chef of a certain Catherine de Medici in 1533. The macarons made their debut on none other than the wedding of the Queen of France. But back then, macarons were served and eaten as cookies, without the filling and without the other half. It wasn't until later on that a pastry chef's grandson decided he would much rather have the cookies with a chocolate panache filling and with another one piled on to it. This only happened as the 20th century began. With its rich history, delicate creation process, and its endearing charm, macarons soon became the pastry that France would be most known for.
