A macaron recipe is only as perfect as the home baker’s understanding of the many other important factors that affect the success of making the perfect macaron. This book is a straight to the point and focused book that provides information on what it takes to make the perfect batch of macarons.
The book covers the key factors that affect macaron making success—technique, baking environment and the oven. The book provides recommendations, ideal environmental conditions, helpful tips, troubleshooting information and photos from our macaron trials to help others conquer the temperamental French pastry.
Areas we cover are the importance of using the right egg whites, correct whipping technique, egg whites and aging them, ideal temperature and humidity levels for macarons, oven settings and more.
