Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
 
Try shells flavored with pistachio, blackberry, coconut, and red velvet, filled with the likes of sesame buttercream, strawberry guava pâte de fruit, crunchy dark chocolate ganache, and lemon curd. Or go savory with shells like saffron, parsley, and ancho chile paired with fillings like hummus, foie gras with black currant, and duck confit with port and fig. The options for customization are endless, and the careful, detailed instruction is like a private baking class in your very own kitchen! All recipes have been tested by students and teachers alike and are guaranteed to bring the flavors of France right to your door.

Synopsis:

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.
