Colorful French Confections to Make at Home
by Kathryn Gordon & Anne E. McBride (Hardcover—2011)
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 flavour 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. The options for customization are endless, and the careful, detailed instruction is like a private baking class in your very own kitchen!
