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.
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.
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!
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!
