How to make French Macarons
A step-by-step recipe from Ladurée
Macarons are the new muses of French pastry. They’re among the most delicate sweets, and this is also probably why they’re so difficult to make.
I’ve been making macarons for more than 5 years, I’ve tried many different recipes and my all-time favourite is Ladurée’s.
You’ve probably heard of Ladurée. Ladurée is a French luxury bakery and sweets maker house created in 1862 in Paris by Louis-Ernest Ladurée. It is one of the world’s best-known premier sellers of the now inevitable macarons.
A few years ago, I bought their famous book “Sucré”. I freaking fell in love with it. I had no idea I could develop such strong feelings for a cookbook lol Not only is this book marvelous – I’m in love with that green velvet, it’s also full of detailed recipes along with mouth-watering pictures.
Anyway, the key to making perfect macarons is bloody patience. To be good at making macarons, you need to be very patient and methodical. These little bastards are attention whores. So be careful.
