In case you've been on another planet for the past few months, a new craze has taken the dessert world by storm! The new pastry du jour is none other than the humble French macaron, made famous by such big names as Pierre Herme, Laduree and have even been brought over the channel to the UK by chefs such as Edd Kimber.
The macaron, although unassuming is a daunting challenge! A mix of meringue and almonds make this dessert one tricky little sandwich!
I used a Pierre Herme recipe to make a box of macarons for my friend's engagement party this weekend, and I can tell you now, they were difficult to make, the steps and timing are all precise, but I got there in the end!
