5.0 out of 5 stars The most balanced Macaron book yet May 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Quite interesting book, explains the basics from Almond Meal to Egg Whites and provides a interesting viewpoint. One thing he omits but you must understand and take advantage of is the use of a copper bowl to whisk the egg whites. Also has basics for several recipes based in meringue: Italian, French, and macaron evolution from Amareti to Macarons de Nancy.

The only thing I would object is that it doesnt explain in detail macaronage for french meringue: ribbon stage, form an fluid 8, tip must dissapear within 10 seconds of dropping the batter.

And for Italian Meringue slow ribbon, tip must dissapear within 15 seconds.

But this are things I prefer to view in a video, still great book and great take on such a classic dessert.

The book went on about the macaron and really told no secrets or shortcut. It did tell me the two ways to make them but there are more ways. There were recipes for butter cream.A waste of my time. On line I learned more save your money.
