Snackshot: Parisian Treats

This week's sugary Snackshot comes to us courtesy of Gary R. Wise and Maison Burdisso:

"Maison Burdisso Parisian Macarons
At Farmer's Market every Saturday
3701 Travis Street
Houston TX 77002"

Much like Marcelo Kreindel and his company, Trentino Gelato, Jackie Burdisso makes authentic and delicious treats from another country for a hungry Houston crowd. Her homemade macarons come from a recipe passed down through her family -- who owned a patisserie in the South of France -- and are available in Houston at two area farmers markets as well as at Kuhl-Linscomb. Flavors vary from week to week and include such delights as blood orange, fig, gingerbread, cassis and pomegranate.

Remember to submit your own photos (of food or anything else) to the Houston Press Flickr Pool. We'll choose our favorite food photo each Monday to be featured here on Eating Our Words.
