I love nothing more than sitting down in the afternoon with a pot of tea and a nice biscuit or cake, but this Sunday I had an especially nice afternoon tea. I had been to York to visit my friend Emma and we were so excited to see macaroons in the window of Betty's! Betty's is a legendary and traditional cafe in Yorkshire, that hasn't changed much since it first opened in 1919. The food is amazing and the queues for their afternoon tea get SO long! I had to try these macaroons. I was a macaroons virgin. The best one was definitely the chocolate one, because I am a bit of a chocaholic, but the lemon one was also particularly good with a lemon curd filling. They were crunchy, chewy and tasty. I have no other macaroons to compare them to, but they were rather delicious! Let's see if Laduree's offerings are any better when I go to Paris in a month!
