    First, no I don't want to make them. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif

    Second I was hoping to buy some macroons from Pierre Herme in Paris and have them shipped as a gift for a special friend. Sadly Pierre Herme does not ship from Paris. That is not entirely bad since the cost would be outrageous. Does anyone have a suggestion for amazing macroons that I could order online or over the phone. It is a b-day gift for a friend as I said.

    Thanks.

    If your friend lives in New York City, there's a place called Macaron Parlour that's been in business for about a year now. By the way, one of the two founders studied at Atelier Pierre Herme de Formation a la Haute Patisserie. I've read good things about this place, but there's one drawback: they only deliver in New York City. Here's their contact link anyway, should you wish to inquire further. Who knows what might happen?
