As a pastry chef, I know that making macarons is not easy at all. It is said that only about 1 out of 10 chefs can make a perfect one. It is said that macarons have made many grown adults cry!
The macaron is a unique, refined and delicious dessert that carries a lot of history. It was the preferred dessert of Marie Antoinette and of many kings. Their different colors and presentation have guaranteed them a privileged place in weddings and important events.
With a lot of patience, I have been able to perfect my macaron recipe and it’s one of my favorite desserts to prepare. In my career as a chef I’ve prepared them thousands of times. I’ve baked them so many times I lost count as it now comes as second nature to me. This is one of my most nostalgic memories, like when one remembers a love that has never left our hearts.
As a way to revive that part of my life, I will be blogging about macarons in this site. I will have recipes, tips and more.
As a teaser, I can tell you that the macaron is divided into three important parts: The shell, the filling and lots of patience. It is this patience that will allow you to bake a marvelous macaron that will be a true work of art to take into your mouth. If you have ever tasted an authentic macaron you know that it is an explosion of flavor in your mouth. It is an experience that will make you a macaron addict.
