Savory tradition

We know the macaroon today as a sweet cookie, but it hasn't always been that way. Back when a royal patissier would whip up these tasty morsels for French kings and their courts, says French-trained pastry chef Yu Fan, the little cookie sandwiches were filled with savories like salmon or foie gras. "These rare flavors were luxurious, for very fancy parties." They're a better deal now: Boxes of six savory or sweet cookies can be had for about 125-150 yuan.
