Overview

Les Petits Macarons: Colorful French Confections to Make at Home by Kathryn Gordon, Anne E. McBride

Les Petits Macarons is your ultimate and easy guide to making delectable, bakery-quality macarons - at home!

Macarons have become a worldwide sensation, whether it be because of their dazzling assortment of colors, their associations with Parisian elegance, or just because they taste amazing! These delectable little delights may seem daunting for any home baker, but authors Kathryn Gordon and Anne E. McBride are here to demystify macarons.

This book is like a private baking class in your very own kitchen, with careful, detailed instruction and recipes guaranteed to bring the flavors of France right to your door. It features dozens of flavor combinations, structured around three basic shell methods-French, Swiss, and Italian-with a never-before-seen Easiest French Macaron Method (and a convenient Troubleshooting Guide) that is sure to make macaron magic possible for anyone using nothing more than a mixer, an oven, and a piping bag.

Shell flavors include:

  • Pistachio
  • Blackberry
  • Coconut
  • Red velvet
With an array of fillings:
  • Crunchy dark chocolate ganache
  • Lemon curd
  • Strawberry guava pate de fruit
There are even savory flavors like saffron, parsley, and ancho chile paired with fillings like hummus, foie gras with black currant, or duck confit with port and fig. Les Petits Macarons offers endless possibilities for everyone to enjoy!

This is a great book with a lot of great recipes. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because nowhere in the book does it include the "rest time" for the cookies to develop their outter hard shell like I did in a baking class. So what happened? Volcanoes! Practically all of my shells exploded out the top. I recommend to anyone....buy this book! But please, let the shells sit on the counter for up to an hour before baking (they should feel slightly tacky) and then simply bake at 325 for around 11 mins. Enjoy!
