Nougatine

A few weeks ago, I attended the Cake Bake and Sweets Show in Melbourne. I was lucky enough to win tickets to the show with eatplayshop blog and to top it off a selection of Nougatine's treats!! I know I have been on a winning streak lately!

Nougatine are known for their macarons and recently won Gold Medal at the Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards for their Salted Butter Caramel macaron and I will have to agree with the award. Each macaron is made individually so each is unique. Some of the interesting flavours available are Blueberry & Violet, Mango & Lime, Pear & White Balsamic, Mandarin & Thyme, Kiwi & Kaffir Lime, the list goes on. 

   Macarons (from top to bottom):  Rose & Rhubarb / Caramelised White Chocolate / Raspberry & Dark Chocolate / Salted Butter Caramel / Strawberry & Basil

My favourite macarons were the Strawberry & Basil, Raspberry & Dark Chocolate and Salted Butter Caramel of course.

I loved the truffles too which are hand rolled and packed with flavour. My favourite truffle was the White chocolate, Tonka Bean & Pistachio. A very unique flavour combo that works and is not too sweet which is nice.

  Meringues (from top left to right):  Lemon, lime & green tea / Raspberry & vanilla / Chocolate & mint

Love their little meringues, so delicate and morish. My favourite meringue was the Lemon, Lime & Green Tea, you can really taste the citrus flavours in this one - so good! Couldn't stop at one!

  Chocolate bars (from top to bottom):  White Chocolate filled with Cocoa Caramel / Milk Chocolate filled with Salted Butter Caramel & Hazelnut / Dark Chocolate filled with a Coffee Caramel

The chocolate used to make the chocolate bars is thin and delicate, such a beautiful treat. My favourite flavour was the White Chocolate filled with Cocoa Caramel, mm I need more!

Thanks again Nougatine for my beautiful treats!
