holidays

It's November, which means it's late enough in the year for holiday gift guides! The NY Times has started putting up some good ones, including this one on cookbooks. I Love Macarons has been on my Amazon wishlist for a while--it just looks so cute!! (I've never even had a macaron, and have no way of making almond flour--unless that stuff exists?--but that cookbook makes me want to make fidgety French cookie things!)

I guess they're into macarons--they also suggest buying some for friends and family. Anyone know where I can get some locally? I'd love to try one.

I think you can buy almond paste at a Southern Season. And I believe Valour's, the French Patiserrie in Hillsborough, sells them, but I would call in advance as he sells out of most things by lunch.

I had no idea there was a French Patisserie in Hillsborough--thanks for the heads-up!
