Baroque Bistro Patisserie: Free Macarons, The Rocks, Sydney (25 Mar 2010)

88 George Street, The Rocks, Sydney NSW 2000

Delights of sweet pleasure

Q. So what's better than a delicious macaron from Baroque Bistro Patisserie?
A. A whole box of 28 of them hand-delivered for FREE!

How's this possible? We'll for the month of March I was the lucky draw prize winner of their popular competition Who's the most popular in your office? which allows you the chance to win a box. These are the first macarons I've tried in Sydney and love them. My favourites were Salted Caramel and Rosewater and my least favourite was Olive Oil but it was still nice and quite amazing how you can taste the olive oil without it being too sickly. The Cassis would have been the most rich tasting for me. The Jasmine Tea flavour was light on flavour but still slightly noticeable. The Passionfruit & Milk Chocolate was also very nice. So if your keen to go in the draw to win your own box for the office then be sure to enter — you've got nothing to lose and plenty to gain!

PROS: Interesting flavours, super light and delicate meringue, tasty fillings
CONS: You can't stop at one
MUST TRY: Salted caramel, Rosewater

Amazing! I can't tell you how jealous I am. I have tried the salted caramel one and it is mindblowingly good. Well done Simon!

Fiona said...

hi zina, glad you like the salted caramel one too. i think it was an office favourite for the ones that managed to try some.

hi fiona, the jasmine tea was the most exotic sounded but worked rather nicely.

hi yaya, i tried them all but just had a quarter of some of them so we could share as many as possible with the other office colleagues.

hi foodwink, good luck in the competition.

hi PIE-3.14, i'll surely be comparing these to all other macarons in the future

hi sarah vino, if you love rose water then i'm sure you won't be disappointed :-)

hi that's ron, it won't be the last time i try these also :-)

Renita said...

Simon Food Favourites said...

hi amy, i think you're right! :-)

hi renita, how do they compare to zumbo macs? i've yet to try those ones.

Angie Lives to Eat (and Cook)! said...

I'm going crazy! I keep making comments but they don't seem to be appearing!

Anyway we'll try again. So jealous of your freebies! Even though I had already my fix on the weekend. Can never get enough of them!
