(from Eat and Be Merry)
I love macarons. They are my new food passion. The delight of biting through the slightly crisp outer to the soft centre of the macaron with the swirl of goodness as the central filling. There is nothing so delicious.
But I cannot cook them. I fear the bad outcome. I am afraid of being turned off these gorgeous treats by a nasty cooking experience. So I cannot taste their goodness at home.
I can sew. This is my first macaron - a pink confection with luscious berry filling. It's no fat and will last forever. I think there may be more to come.
