What? Believe it or not, you are currently looking at THE most delicious Florentine that this Pud-Hog’s ever eaten.
As far as luxury biscuits go, it ticked all the boxes and then some: a generous dose of Almonds, juicy Glacé Cherries, scraps of moist Mixed Peel, and a very decent slathering of Chocolate.
The best thing about it by far, however, was the texture: crispy where it mattered as well as super chewy.
Overall, it seemed more like a Cookie than the harder, toffee-like Florentines made by bakeries such as Fudges – and was, in my view, all the better for it.
Impossible to leave alone, I took mine out of its bag for a taste, then found I just couldn’t stop
Where? Track one down at Madame Macaroon’s stall, loitering in various London locations every Sunday (check the M.M. website and Twitter for details)
How Much? Just ONE of your English pounds (bargain!)
Madame Macaroon? More like Queen Florentine
