Macaroons. Arguably, one of the most terrifying baking things to tackle for two reasons. First, the challenge of piping just the right amount of meringuey batter onto the cookie sheet, and secondly, successfully removing that same meringuey batter once it’s been baked to a super light, airy cookie … without cracking it.
G tackled macaroons yesterday as part of our 40 garlic clove chicken dinner courtesy of Blee and Not Quite Nigella, which – if you are a foodie and have not yet subscribed – means you are, in fact, no foodie at all.
That said, G made yummy Hazelnut Macaroons with Chocolate Ganache … a real winner! And this is coming from myself, who is no fan whatsoever of anything sweet.
Well done G!
Meanwhile, Blee prepared the chicken with 40 blessed cloves of garlic. See here for prep.
