But my dad my mum is going to give him a hand, but I think.. They are such temperamental little buggers and until you work out what to do with your oven ovens are like cars.. Anyway, today I made passionfruit macarons! In retrospect, I probably should have coloured them yellow..

This is the cutest cookbook alive. As a fan of well-designed books and good food photography, I would buy it and keep it for this reason alone. However, on a practical level, its loaded with mistakes. There are typos galore. Some of the errors are just misplaced punctuation, but others are incorrect measurement conversions.
More importantly, I don't think the recipes were tested with what's available in American stores and prepared in American kitchens. The ingredients section call for corns This is the cutest cookbook alive.
The ingredients section call for cornstarch-free powdered sugar; I found this difficult to locate, and I live in San Francisco. Also, you'll notice in the macaron-baking section, our home pastry chef slides her baking pan in a Japanese-style oven the size of a big toaster oven. I'm sure that baking in a larger American-style oven, which may be gas-powered, would require different baking instructions. Having made my first batch, it wasn't a total loss.
The buttercream recipe was fine, and the cookies tasted great, though they looked like rejects thrown in the back dumpster of Pierre Herme. So, to sum up, this book is great for inspiration, but find your macaron recipe elsewhere.
I haven't had a chance to confirm that the recipes use too much egg-whites, but I wouldn't be surprised because our first batch was too runny. Everything plumped up and I even had pied-feet and was feeling great Not really, but they WILL smell like burned popcorn. That was quite the bummer and meant that I had to guesstimate how long to cook the next two trays, and it ended up being a bit of a mess. Then the icing. The recipe seems to be trying to get your sugar-water mixture to the soft ball candy stage, but 4 minutes in the microwave which is the STARTING point given, with more time added "as needed" ended up in a caramel that was practically black.
And subsequent tests with the microwave convinced me that the line between soft ball stage and hard thread stage is too fine to try to achieve in my microwave. So that's a huge disappointment. I think this book is pretty, the pictures are lovely, and in terms of talking you through the theory of macaroons and the available flavor combinations, there's a lot of good material here.
But in terms of, you know, actually making the cookies, this book is worse than useless because unless you read the reviews, you'll go into this trusting the book and end up with burned cookies and burned sugar. A lot of effort with nothing to show for it. Two stars because no matter how pretty the book is, someone should have tested the recipes before publishing this edition. View 1 comment.

Jan 27, Kat added it. French Macaroons are amazing. The step by step in this book was perfect. Cookie success! May 22, Gina Tackett rated it it was amazing. I have always wanted to make macarons. I think they are one of the most delicious cookies EVAH!!!
However, they can also be pretty pricey. My mama always said if you like something. I believe with this step by step cookbook I can conquer this cookie. She breaks it down to the simplest steps and also adds what could go wrong and explains why it did so and how you can fix it in the future.
I cannot wait to get the supplies and try my hand at this. Feb 14, Diana rated it liked it. Very Pinterest. I like how blog postish these recipies seems. The Japanese elements are charming and flavour combinations sweet and interesting.
The formatting for the ebook was off on a lot of pages, such that full page images didn't show. Also, the presentation of recipes were inconsistent. When it came to food colouring, for instance, in some cases the amounts were stated, in others they weren't. Also, "add more of this than" just doesn't do it when it comes to baking recipes. Accuracy and precision are key.

I Love Macarons!
For some reason, the world went a little nuts for Parisian macarons in the past year and everyone, from New York to New Delhi, seemed to be fascinated by these little sandwich cookies. Folks in the rest of France make more traditional macarons , made from a simple meringue with sugar and nuts folded in, then baked until crispy. When I Love Macarons! Solid proof of the popularity of macarons, for sure. The book is a translation from a Japanese edition, written by pastry chef Hisako Ogita.
