    One thought on “Macarons”

    1. A beautiful book with comprehensive instructions and lots of inspirational ideas for flavour combinations. A must have book for the serious baker with an appreciation for modern French patisserie.

    2. This book is perfect for someone who's enthusiastic about making macarons. Like most things, it helps to have had some experience with them before trying some of these recipes, since a lot of them have somewhat exotic ingredients. But really, the steps that Pierre Hermé provides are pretty in-depth and easy to follow, which is exactly what I was looking for. They tell you precisely what to know and what to do.As far as the design and content go, it's a beautiful book with nice, vibrant pictures [...]

    3. I love the recipes in this book and his technique is by far the most superior of the ones I tried. It can be tricky finding some of the ingredients (not to mention expensive) but well worth it for the end product. However, as with all pastries and desserts, there is not much room for improvisation or personal touches. Follow the recipe to a tee and you will get good results.

    4. The pictures alone make this book worth it. The thing with Macarons is they are so temperamental but these recipes are amazing.

    5. A great masterclass from the master of macarons. Being Pierre Hermé his recipes can be complex, but always amazing.
