In 2017 my blog has a high number of macaron recipe posts, and I confess that 2017 was my year of the MACARON OBSESSION. I made macarons nearly every week and shared many of my recipes in this blog. Browsing through my favourite recipes, I realized that I got pretty good at making macarons! I baked with different nuts: almond, pistachio, walnut, sesame, macadamia, hazelnut…and different fillings: jams, curds, chocolate ganaches, cheeses…and different ways of colouring and decorating the shells. But my main focus was on developing delightful flavour combinations, especially for fruity flavours.
A word of encouragement to fellow macaron bakers: At first I found macarons very difficult and intimidating. Many batches failed, but over time I dialled in my technique and gained confidence. Making macarons really is a matter of time and practice — and there are always volunteers to eat less-than-perfect macarons! Good luck to you in your macaron endeavours, please send me your best recipes.
