Les Petits Macarons: Colorful French Confections to Make at Homeby Kathryn Gordon
Synopses & Reviews
Macarons, the stuff of bakers’ candy-coated dreams, have taken the world by storm and are demystified here for the home baker, With dozens of flavor combinations, recipes are structured with three basic shell methods—French, Swiss, and Italian—plus one never-before-seen Easiest French Macaron Method. Pick one that works for you, and go on to create French-inspired pastry magic with nothing more than a mixer, an oven, and a piping bag.
Macarons, French sandwich cookies made with almond flour, egg, and sugar and filled with any number of cream- or fruit-based delights, are already the next cupcake. Sold at high-end French bakeries and dessert-based street carts around the world, they’re a baker’s holy grail, requiring a practiced hand and an infallible recipe. For the first time, macarons are demystified by master culinary instructors for the home cook, in more than 125 melt-in-your-mouth combinations and flavors. From pistachio, rose, and cappuccino shells to savory cookies, jam fillings, and ganaches, this is the perfect eye-candy cookbook with which to conquer the world’s most sought-after cookie.
