french macarons.



I have never met someone who did not fall in love with a French macaron at first bite. They are small, delicate, delicious, perfect, and so French. Honestly, what haven't the French blessed the world with? Ever since I took the patisserie class at Le Cordon Bleu, I have been wanting to attempt these myself. So I did what any other ambitious baker would do, I googled. 

Upon my googling, I found three wonderful sites: 




The recipe I used was the one provided by Marie of Food Nouveau. She does a wonderful job explaining with her illustrated step-by-step as well as her video, Learn How to Make Macarons in 5 minutes. Since I am so visual, it helped to have so many references for me to refer to. 

At about 6pm on Thursday night, I decided I had done enough research and was ready to attempt this baking feat. I was ready. Following Marie's guide, almost to the letter, apart from using a stainless steel bowl.

a. John's batch, b. Kat's batch, c. Flat bottoms, d. Little feet





Not bad, huh? Not going to lie, I was pretty proud of these babies. Here's how they compare to the perfectly delightful macarons from the LadurĂ©e in London. 


I'm quite proud. I have a long way to go, but I am determined to master these delicacies. 
Yummy! ❤
