Macaron: mack-ah-ROHn

No, they don’t resemble the coconut flavored macaroons that you might be thinking of. And they certainly don’t sound like them either. If you’re looking to pronounce this correctly, you’ll want to say something like mack-ah-ROHn, with a firmly gargled "r" there, a nasal finish, and a soft "n." Maybe hold your nose while you say it to get a feel for what it should sound like.
