Byron Bay Cookie Company and Christine Manfield are excited to announce the latest treat in their collaboration series:Gluten Free Coconut & Pistachio Macaroons.
Not to be confused with its French counterpart, the macaron, Byron Bay Cookie Company’s Coconut & Pistachio Macaroon is a delightful combination of shredded coconut with a subtle hint of pistachio in a light and fluffy meringue-like confection; and best of all, it is completely gluten free.
Since Byron Bay Cookie Company introduced their gluten free range in 2003, it has been swiftly growing in popularity, inspiring a cult following in a market where gluten free products can sometimes be flavourless and lacking in texture.
Celebrated chef Christine Manfield says of her latest creation, “For my third collaboration with Byron Bay Cookie Company, I was really interested in exploring different textures and flavour combinations and I think we found this with the macaroon”.
Emilie Emond, Byron Bay Cookie Company’s Marketing Manager says, “We’re incredibly excited to have collaborated on another unique product with Christine. Our macaroon creation is a departure from our traditional cookie range, but something we know cookie lovers will delight in sinking their teeth into”.
The Gluten Free Coconut & Pistachio Macaroons are the third treat developed by Christine for Byron Bay Cookie Company following the hugely popular releases of the Passionfruit Dark Chocolate Cookie and the Salted Caramel Popcorn Cookie released earlier this year.
The macaroons can be enjoyed as a treat for morning or afternoon tea or served as a Byron Mess: a dessert combining coconut macaroons with cream and fresh berries, for Christine’s very own take on the Eton Mess.
Byron Bay Cookies Gluten Free Coconut & Pistachio Macaroons will be available in David Jones from 21 November with RRP $16.95.
