Saffron, Orange, And Honey Madeleines
Traditionally, madeleines are best eaten as close to coming out of the oven as possible. Here, untraditionally, we forgo all the beating and just place the ingredients in a food processor. Mixing them this way means that the resulting madeleines won’t be quite as light as those made by hand-whisking, but they’re every bit as delicate and buttery as you’d hope. We do it this way to build in a little bit of robustness, which allows them to still be eaten hours (rather than minutes) after they come out of the oven. This recipe is from Sweet, a cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh. Read their tips for making intimidating-seeming desserts at home, right this way.
National Ice Cream Sandwich Day has already come and gone, but we're okay with celebrating a made-up holiday a few days late when it involves macaron ice cream sandwiches.
Ladurée, the gourmet French bakery that now has eight US locations in New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Washington D.C., recently debuted their take on the classic summer treat which involves sandwiching ice cream between two extra-large versions of their light and flaky macaron cookies.
It's called the Macaron Glacé and Laduree has already dubbed it "the ultimate ice cream sandwich," according to their Instagram page.

Summer's favorite flavor now has a whole menu devoted to it.
The legendary Rainbow Room, set on the 65th floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, is offering a Rosé Bar Pop-Up for four nights this July. Beginning July 14, guests can snack on rosé-inspired treats like a champagne donut bouquet served with rosé sorbet, champagne icing, gold dust, and cotton candy ($15, above) while they sip watermelon rosé sangria ($15).
The Frisky Oyster is another special, featuring six raw oysters topped with rosé granita, candied grapefruit, and pink peppercorn (market price). Six rosé wines will also be available, of course, alongside rosé cocktails, cider, and champagne.
We swap in richly spiced cauliflower "rice" for semolina in this nutritious and gluten-free take on couscous. Serve it as a side for grilled vegetables or meats or hearty stews like Easy Lamb Tagine with Pomegranate.
