I recently read about Baker D Chirico’s pop up store
and very excitedly headed there for a macaron hit. The macarons at Baker D Chirico had been recommended to me, but unfortunately, being the insular Northsider that I am, I rarely make it over to St Kilda.
Baker D Chirico’s pop up store is right near my work and absolutely gorgeous to boot:
So much deliciousness..
I am told that the bakery is considering opening a permanent city store (either in Crossley St or otherwise) provided enough sales go through during the Christmas period – so get buying people! The store closes on Christmas Eve so you have today left!!
I had a lovely chat to a fellow Emily who was manning the store about Baker D Chirico’s plans and the fascination people have with the salted caramel macarons (they keep selling out!). I had such an enthusiastic chat to her that I managed to leave the store with my three macarons without paying. Whoops! I visited the following day and rectified my mistake.
Anyway on to the macarons – I selected three:
Pistachio, lemon and coffee macarons
They looked pretty good – all with good ‘feet’, although the lemon one was spread a bit.
Biting in, all three had great flavour but I hate to say it, all three also had air pockets:
Coffee - yum!
I was very disappointed with this as I was desperately keen for my macaron search to be over. Nonetheless, on the plus side the macarons ticked a lot of other boxes – not too sweet, pronounced flavour (unlike the Cristina Re macarons which I will post about later) and with a good amount of filling that was soft and delicious.
I think I will go back to Baker D Chirico to give them another chance but unfortunately, these are not top of the macaron pile. I still haven’t managed to snaffle a salted caramel macaron either!
