Manchester Macaroons

Manchester-macaroonsWe’ve been inspired by the Manchester day parade and the Manchester bake off this week-end and we are trying to figure our the taste of Manchester?
Looking to replicate in a macaroon.
Manchester tart? So bananas some say (others disagree with the banana comment) with custard, jam and coconut.
Vimto? Fruity goodness, apparently grapes should play the largest part.
The Manchester Egg? Hmm! not sure about a pickled egg and black pudding macaroon, the chances of that working are very slim.
Boddingtons? Too bitter?!
What do you think mac lovers? What’s the taste of Manchester?
