Macaron - Six
A bag of macarons from Vanille Patisserie, So very good. There were six, now there are none.

I am a macaron novice. Before last August 2012 I never knew that such a delicacy existed until a trip to Marche du Vieux-Port de Quebec revealed a counter of pastel objects that looked nothing like a macaroon. Where was the coconut? I won't try to describe how good it was but I'll just say that I never forgot how good it was.
Being the kind of person that takes the long, scenic route to get to wherever I'm going, I've been wanting to return to the Market in the Old Port. Directly across from the pattiserie is a cheese shop, while next to it is a beverage shop stocked with Unibroue. This is what my dreams are made of, a farmer's market over a thousand miles away.
In an attempt to make the macaron more of a reality, I searched "chicago macaron" and Vanille Patisserie comes up.
