A little disappointing,
This review is from: Macarons (Hardcover)
This is a very pretty book and is well laid out; it has some interesting flavour suggestions but lacks wow factor. Since purchasing this book I have rarely used it, although I have flicked through it many times. The macarons I tried did turn out well although I did reduce the oven temperature to 160 C.
When embarking on macaron making I purchased three books and the other two - I Love Macarons and Mad About Macarons! Make Macarons Like the French - have proved far more useful. The basic macaron recipe is different in each of the books and the macarons resulting from the recipes in this book are on the dry side and do not have the expected consistency.
