"I love to bake. I’m mainly a cupcake girl. But I have always loved the look of macarons. They’re so beautiful. The colors alone are tempting. But, I have to be honest. I’ve never tasted one let alone make one. So I was thrilled when I saw this book!
Once the title, and subject of a cookbook draws me in, the next thing I look for are photos. There are no photos in this book. That totally bums me out because the photos could have been so colorful, and beautiful. Now, I have the book on Kindle copy. It also sells in paperback, so maybe the print book has photos.
Once I got over my lack-of-photo disappointment, I got into the recipes. 99 recipes to be exact. It starts with a basic batter recipe. What follows are macaron combinations that I never expected. Along with your typical flavors like chocolate, you’ll find Salted Pretzel with Chocolate Ganache, Banana and White Chocolate, Violet with Violet and Vanilla Bean Buttercream, Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese, Cracked Pepper, Mint and Strawberry, Lime and Basil, Pear and Elderflower, Lychee, Champagne and Roses, Dandelion, Candy Corn, Ketchup, Cayenne Pepper, Tomato Vanilla and so many more! There are also recipes for many different fillings!
MACARON RECIPES: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE, has taken away my fear of baking macarons. And knowing that any flavor combination can be made, will, I’m ready to get the flour flying!
