French macarons are delicious and cute, but they are also notoriously finicky to make at home. The elegant meringue-based cookies, made popular by Ladure in Paris, require method and patience to make, but they can be done in a home kitchen, and you don’t even have to be an expert baker!
I’ve been making macarons for almost 15 years, and I’ve been advising budding macaron makers for over 10 years, so I have in-depth knowledge of what can go wrong when you attempt to make them at home for the first time. This course describes the essential equipment you need, the important steps to follow, the techniques to master, and the potential pitfalls to avoid.
