5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 15 Feb. 2011

This review is from: Macarons Et Gourmandises Fl (Paperback)
This little book packs a hefty punch in terms of quality content.

Yes, it is in French - but it is accessible to anyone with a bit of knowledge of the language, access to Google and some cooking experience.

The majority of the book is dedicated to a wide range of macaron recipes and what I particularly like is the way that it is both shell and filling that get flavoured. Too many books are just filling recipes with instructions on what colour to add to your shell. Here you get ideas for adding spices and other things to create more complex and exciting combinations.

This is probably not the book for someone new to the macaron game - the instructions for creating your batter are quite slim and not illustrated. However there are plenty of excellent online tutorials that can give you all the help you need.

Alongside the macs are a range of other French patisserie delicacies - financiers, madeleines and many more.

For the price, this is an outstanding book. Almost worth learning French for it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book, Proper macron recipys, 19 May 2011
This review is from: Macarons Et Gourmandises Fl (Paperback)
Fantastic book, Im a pastry chef althought it is in french it is easy to work out what it says, i bought a copy because all the english books on macrons are poor and so altered and changed there not worth bothering with, this has proper french recipys for macrons and other small cakes (Madeleines etc)
its easy to work out the ingredients or use babelfish translation if you are not sure, and if your a chef or up on making cakes then you only need the recipy not the method anyway
