At any given moment there are sophisticated Parisiennes drinking tea and nibbling at a Macaron on the Champs Elysees. No French patisserie can exist without a selection of mouth-watering colourful Macaroons. These melt-in-the-mouth fruity, nutty or creamy confections have been served in French palaces and chic salons for over three hundred years. In Irresistible Macaroons you'll learn how to make these fabulously decadent smooth almond meringues, sandwiched together with a rich ganache. Perfect as gifts, impressive as amuse bouches, join the likes of Carla Bruni, Catherine Deneuve and Charlotte Rampling in their favourite secret indulgence. The famous Parisienne tea room Laduree is now in Harrods and the Pierre Herme boutique is selling macaroons at Selfridges.
