Macaron Take One

21 Feb

I looked through my macaron books every week because I admire the works and photos in them so much. I wanted to bake macaron since the first time I had a bite of it, but I was a little intimated. The very first macaron book I bought was I Love Macarons by Hisako Ogita. I bought it right when it came out, and it took me awhile to find it because it was sold out everywhere. I flipped through it over and over, and made sure I read every single word in it. I always hear that macaron consists of just a few ingredients, but the process is complicated. I finally have the courage to make my very first batch, EVER, on December 27, 2011.

The following macaron was made with the recipe from the I Love Macaron book. I started with a vanilla one because I want to make sure the simpliest flavor works before I move onto other flavors that requires other ingredients.

They don’t look perfect, but they are round enough and crunchy enough on the outside and chewy enough on the inside for the first time. It was a nice batch that I test my oven temperature and such. I didn’t experience any troubleshoot at all. It’s such excitement to know I am capable to do it.

I took my first step, and now it’s time to embark on this macaron adventure!

      I have heard of his name and heard of some of the amazing combination of flavors he has to offer! Love his creativity and will definitely do something as courageous as he does with flavors soon! The ones you made sounds awesome! I was trying to get some rose water couple months ago, but they comes in such big bottles!
