This weekend get awesome French-style macarons from Itzy Bitzy Patisserie at the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene. The woman behind Itzy Bitzy Patisserie, Mitzy Budiono, took classes with French macaron master Pierre Hèrme—it's the real deal. Even though the Brooklyn Flea is an outdoor market, you should brave the cold; I went last weekend even though my feet almost froze off, and it was totally worth it. You can choose from six types of macarons: pumpkin, pistachio, passion fruit, chocolate caramel pecan, chestnut green tea, and coffee. Each one is $2.50, or save money by getting a six-pack for $12. Need more convincing? Read my previous post about Mitzy's macarons.
