Laduree's macarons at 16, Rue Royale Paris... Took this picture a few days ago.
No, I'm not writing about Laduree macarons. I've done that before! ;) But I would like to write about this week's most interesting class! It's the French Macarons class! What is most special about it was, my teacher used to work in Laduree's kitchen here in Paris!
She's really experienced in baking and styling Laduree Macarons before she got married, and started teaching such classes. I just love how she shared with us, her culinary story and some secrets from the Laduree kitchen.
There she is, on the right. Luckily the class was conducted in English! Yippie! Glad, since my French is still nothing to be proud of :D
And that's me, working hard in the kitchen :)
Anyway, during the class, we were separated onto two groups. My group was assigned to bake a few trays of Vanilla & Pear garnish macarons in green pastle color, while the other group baked Praline' garnish macarons, in pastle purple color. Let's have the pictures tell the story!
I think my macaroons teacher was happy with what I have baked. I just can't wait to get home and start perfecting it! Au revoir!
