I made macarons! - Page 2

post #16 of 41
I don't get macaroons. Every place I've had them in NYC, I always end up with the same reaction, what's the big deal? The people who tell me about these places are the same people that talk down the cupcake places, even though they coo about these things just like the cupcake freaks do.

Anyway, those look like they were done by a pro foo.

Where have you tried them, ed?

Not crazy about them either. But I couldn't say that I didn't enjoy the ones I've had. I prefer other "patisserie" but macarons have earned their place over time.

Most macarons I get are awful. But Laduree is awesome.

I think theyre opening a SoHo location, so my wife can bring me some every day.

I watched the video and it's informative and well done. Is her voice "too hot to pass up"? No. I don't find the female Aussie voice particularly pleasant to the ear, but hers isn't as grating as most on the continent.

G'day! Throw a macaroon on the barbie?

the place by rock center, I think its Bouchon or Bouley Bakery. A small coffee shop across from Bryant Park on 40th. A french bakery on 3rd, somewhere in the 30s. Another place I can't remember. I think you need to bake me a half dozen or so to change my mind, nothing special, just chocolate, vanilla and whatever else your heart fancies. I'll PM you the shipping address.

In private, yeah? Why's that?

Bouchon Bakery's are pretty decent. Unless they served you stale ones, if you don't like them, it's unlikely you'll like any. Their vanilla ones are particularly good---better than Laduree's in my opinion.

However, we tend to get stupider flavors in the U.S. Just like with gelato. Lots of chocolate and strawberry.

Oh, you're a Matt, too. To me, you are a Foo. I meant the other Matt, Matt.

Reminds me.. still need to finish reading the Foofed thread.

Anyways, back to the topic, back to macarron chacarron (ok, that one was bad).

I am going to try this! Is there anything else you found that made it easier?
