Big big thanks to the moderators for organising the demo & MCDC Meet #10. good job done in keeping the club running by organising activities all year round.

Was a first-timer there and I'd still consider myself a newbie among all the sifus at the meet. Learnt some new tips on how to make macarons .... and was delighted to meet the people behind the user names in MCDC. However, apologies for leaving early .... coz hubby was already on his way to whisk me away.

Till the next meet.... Smile

Sigh, the meeting was over before we knew it. Thanks to the mods (Ina was her naughty self bringing the house down with her 'er hem' comments) and The Academy of Pastry Arts for a most informative afternoon, not forgetting the lovely refreshment. YUM! Good to know that we have another world class pastry school in our neck of the woods. Yeah!

Ladies,
Thank you for coming. I am sure we have learnt a lot from Chef Tan and Chef Lejeune both on pulled sugar and macaron making. It was such a relaxing evening chatting and catching up with all of you. Big thank you to all moderators for making this Meet another success. Look forward to seeing all of you again soon.

Thank's Alannia Smile
Do you need to dry the macaron first before baking ?

Hope to see the video soon bounce

Would you believe I made macaroons when I was 11 or 12 years old for Christmas. Haven't done any since. I do remember that it takes forever to bake, cos the oven has to be very low, sort of dries them out instead of baking. Definitel more that an hour just for one batch.

In those days there was no such thing as meringue powder; it was just egg whites, icing sugar and cream of tartar for stabilizing. They came out fine.

I've noticed now that some recipes use a bain-marie when whisking the egg-whites. Anyone tried this?

I have made this recipe at home, and I must say it is more reliable than my regular macaron recipe. I think the meringue powder stabilises the whole mixture, so it gives a bit more leeway when you are folding the meringue and icing sugar/almond together; when you are doing the 'macaronage' so to speak. All of my macarons had 'feet' and no volcanic explosions either! So I am very happy with the results.

Jennifer, no need to dry. Chef Lejeune says bake straight away.
