Super Strict Score [understand my S3]: 9
Pierre Hermé, the pastry king, makes a variety of macaron ice cream sandwiches of which unfortunately only a handful are available in Japan. Among them: his classic, Miss Gla’Gla Montebello.
Miss Gla Gla Montebello
Pistachio macaron, strawberry sorbet
The balance between pistachio & berry, tricky to get right, is spot on in this ice cream sandwich. The pistachio macaron is full of flavor, tastes quite marzipaney. The strawberry sorbet has that unmistakeable taste that processed strawberry develops & while being distinct is not exactly strong so as not to overwhelm the pistachio flavor. The combination of fresh, fruity, watery sorbet & sweet pistachio macaron make for an accomplished pairing of contrasts – the perfect snack to cool down on a hot summer day.
