I wrote an entry about macarons before this.
But after reading this article , I had to write another entry.
[ see! i still can't rotate this pic la!]
Had my first Malaysian made macarons here at Whisk!
Some one I know read my previous entry on Macarons, and she said
" Buat rugi jer beli macarons tak jadi"
Have you tasted these dear?.
She commented on the feet / legs/pied.
I read an article that modern macaroon makers are so obsessed with the feet/legs/pied
"Getting those feet is the obsession of modern macaron makers:-www.joepastry.com"
Hahahaha..anyway I am REALLY addicted to it.
And my favourite is Lychee & Rose by Ms Pearl from FB.
From the article :-
Macarons will be the sweet sensation in 2011.
Serena Wee is going to spend around RM6K for her macaron tower for her wedding guests!
Macarons can be bought at Starbucks in USA and McDonald's Mc Cafe in Paris.
*Only three imain ngredients : egg whites , ground almonds and sugar.
*"It took me four years to perfect my macarons," says Nathalie Arbefeuille -

*She also said that one would need a good baking tray , a good electric hand beater, a good digital thermometer , a good piping bag , good quality baking paper and high quality ingredients.
*Nora from Whisk said:-
" There was a line of people waitting to buy our macarons. We'd run out by late afternoon and have to turn people away..sometimes people who have come from out of town. It was overwhelming"
*The average price of a macaron in KL ranges from between
RM2 ( for a macaron the size of 20-sen coin) to RM4.50 (for a macaron the size of 50-sen coin)
*After baking , chill your macarons for at least a day before you eat them. Some say a-two-day chilling period is required.
