    • It was on the occasion of the marriage of Louis XIV and the Infanta of Spain in Saint-Jean-de-Luz in 1660 that a wedding gift was deposited a pyramid of Adam macaroons on a pewter tray. The delicate delicacy so much appreciated by the sovereign gourmet will be a success. People will be in a hurry from here and elsewhere, and even today, to savor the royal macaroon from the Maison Adam.

      For more than 360 years, the know-how and the traditional recipe have remained unchanged. Today we savor the same macaroon as the young king in his time. The recipe, perpetrated by their ancestors before them, is now made by Miguel and Andoni Telleria-Adam in the discretion of their workshop with the same desire to provide pleasure to gourmets.

      A selection of fresh almonds, harvested in September, are delivered to the Maison Adam. The artisanal processing of almonds begins here. Crushed, crushed with goldsmith precision and expertly mixed, they are incorporated into the preparation of egg white and sugar. No need to ask for more, the recipe is a family secret.

      You will be able to appreciate this work of almonds, necessary for the preparation of praline, in the shop called Etxea (house, place of life in Basque) at 4 place Louis XIV in Saint-Jean-de-Luz. A roaster lets out a sweet scent of roasted almonds from the store, a unique new sensory experience.

      The macaroons are now accompanied by a selection of Basque cakes generously garnished with cream, jam or chocolate as well as a delicious range of chocolates.

    It was an absolute pleasure! I tried their macarons and little lemon cupcake. Macarons were super fresh (even after 3-4 days in the fridge), they melted on my tongue and smelled amazing - like a butter biscuits make by a grandma. The lady who works in the shop was super nice, despite my low level of French. She even slipped a few candies in the paper bag as a gift for my purchase. Supreme service, outstanding pastries and the smell of good quality chocolate in the boutique. The price is 1 euro/macaron if you don't want a fancy box with it. Keep the macarons in the fridge for 10 days max. Take them out 30 mins before consuming.

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by C L (New York City, New York) on 21/09/2019

    Absolutely delicious and these macaroons are the real thing. So much better than the fancy ones you get in Paris and London. Do not miss this while you are in St. Jean de Luz.
