On Friday night I had the pleasure of volunteering with the Lauren and Kat, the ladies of Panna Dolce at the Meals on Wheels Celebrity Chef Ball at Macy’s on State Street. There were approximately 50 food establishments in attendance, serving everything from lamb and feta sliders to braised short ribs with black truffle polenta to, of course – french macarons! A French macaron, not to be confused with a macaroon, is a meringue-based cookie made with egg whites, almond flour and sugar. They are then filled with things like buttercream or jam to create a little sandwich cookie. Panna Dolce served up a delicious cinnamon-caramel flavor and a more traditional chocolate buttercream. Below are a couple of pictures from the event. Product can be purchased directly from their website, www.pannadolce.com, or at The Goddess and the Grocer, the Neiman Marcus holiday catalog, and next month a select number of Whole Foods. They also make great party favors and hostess gifts, so I encourage you to peruse through their website for something sweet!
