Say hello to (the hands of) Chef Jean Michel Raynaud, Head of Production at Baroque Bistro. This man knows macarons from back to front.
I had the pleasure of learning some tricks of the trade from Chef Jean Michel today. The class was conducted as part of the 30 days of home and entertaining. We were warned that it was only a taste of Baroque Bistro's own macarons masterclass. But gladly, the class was not rushed at all. Chef Jean Michel was very patient in sharing his secrets every step of the way. The most important lesson of the day? Get to know your oven very well.
Note that I have never made any macarons. It's one of those things I'd really like to attempt one day. In fact, mr foodwink aka the engineer is the more enthusiatic one. But taking the first step is always hard. Choosing which recipe to use is another dilemma. Well, after attending Monsieur Raynaud's class, I think I should stop making excuses now!
I'll leave you with some pictures I took at the "Live House" of 30 days home and entertaining in Waterloo, Sydney. There are plenty of free events until the end of the month.
