First you will taste the crunchy bite from the chapeau (top) of an Italian meringue, then the soft velvety ganache (filling), then a crunchy flavor again from what they call the foot of the cookie. Ups and down of flavors from a dreaming creation of French confectionary.

As the story goes, they could have been brought to France by Catherine de Medicis, and her chefs when she married le Duc d’Orleans, future King of France. in…..1533. I told you it’s an ‘old’ recipe.

Macarons cookies are not an easy affair to make. It takes a lot of patience, good techniques and some special circumstances, like do not make macarons when a rainy day, it would be a little disaster as they do not like humidity at all… Finally a good pinch of love of cooking is necessary for these treats to be outstanding.

Do not be afraid of missing the first or second time around, said the chef. Wow, I thought, at this level it will take me five times at least..however, when you do (succeed) the results are fantastic, you will certainly feel like a super pastry chef.

The class I took last week with renown chef Patrick Hebert, from Cook”n with Class, in Paris was simply grandiose!!
