If you're a home cook who wants to learn how to make macarons, you can't go wrong with this book! It's written by a home cook, for the home cook.
I will add one extra tip that I've recently discovered that isn't in the book- if you can find them, use the 2/3 sheet size "bun" pans for your macarons. The sheets are the same size as a standard home oven and you can get a full recipe of macs on one sheet- which means you can make them in half the time. Also, the sheet covers the whole oven rack which makes the oven heat more evenly and cooks the macs better. Enjoy!
In the meantime, I took a class on how to make French macarons and the recipes differed. One needs a second 100g of egg whites. So while this book is visually appetizing, it lacks an ingredient and step which I will notate in my copy of the book. I still think it is a fabulous book!
