These colourful clouds of meringue and sweet ganache are a staple of French Patisserie, tracing back to the early 16th century, finessed and refined by generations of Pastry chefs from Catherine de Medici’s own chefs to the Macaron King Pierre Hermé, and are routinely used, along with the Croissant, as a way to benchmark individual skills and overall standard of Patissiers the world over.
Like many other staples of gastronomy, the list of raw ingredients is short - almond meal, eggs and sugar - but it takes years of trial and experience to get the perfect smooth, shiny finish, crispy shell and soft interiors.
Contrary to many other pastry products Macarons are at their best when they are a few days old. When Macarons are fresh made they are generally very dry and crispy and need to sit in the fridge to absorb enough moisture to get that crispy shell but moorishly soft interior. Macarons are an incredibly stable product which can be kept for up to a week in the fridge and are also able to be blast frozen at -30 degrees and then stored in the freezer, when they thaw they are ready!
Macarons are almond based and, whilst they are gluten free, they are made alongside wheat based products and may, from time to time, contain traces of gluten.
After 35 years and two generations of experience, our Patissiers have perfected the art of Macaron-making! All our macarons are hand made on site in our kitchens in The Rocks and Waterloo.
