I Love Macarons is a step-by-step guide to making macarons, with photographs that accompany each step. Macarons are increasing in popularity, as more and more bakeries offer them in Australia, the US, Europe, and Japan. The white, pink, yellow, green, and various other color combinations, and their round, domelike shape make macarons charming. The sweet, crispy texture of the puffs and the thick cream between them add a rich harmony to this delicate pastry.
Renowned Japanese pastry maker Hisako Ogita has created recipes for making superb macarons at home. After going through many trials - such as trying to figure out how to make the pied (the little foot of the macaron) or how not to crack the pastries - she came up with recipes that anyone can make. Using ordinary equipment and utensils for preparing the ingredients, such as simple cookware and a regular oven, anyone can give the recipes a try.
- Making the Macaron batter - ingredients, utensils, flavour and troubleshooting
- Making the cream filling - utensils, buttercreams and flavours, custard cream, ganache, lemon curd
- Combining assorted puffs and creams
- Gift wrapping ideas for macarons
- Easy-to-make desserts using leftover egg yolks
All measurements are in metric, imperial and cup & spoon measurements.
