about learning something new

Posted on: May 02, 2013

Making macarons. With this goal in mind, I looked for a recipe, wrote down the ingredients, went twice to the supermarket because I forgot something and then started to make something on my own. Sieving the almonds, weighing the egg yolks and then baking everything together at the right temperature were all little steps that led to the learning result: one, even two baking sheets full of macarons au chocolat. From this day on, I know that I can achieve something by only taking the first step to just do it.

12 Notes:

  1. They are really successful, you'll have to give us the recipe.

    1. Pssst, it is this one: www.franzoesischkochen.de/macarons-mein-rezept/ Sadly, it is only in German, but you still have all the ingredients listed :)! Good luck!

  4. That is mega-impressive. As a macron fanatic myself, I usually rely on French bakeries to provide my supply (something about getting the right sized pastry bag tip just seems too intimidating!), but that gets pricey after a while. These look delicious. xo

    1. Thank you, I guess it is more important that they taste good than their look :)
