Macarons are one of my favourite desserts of all time and coincidentally also one of J’s favourites as well. We took on the challenge of baking our first ever set of macarons and had pretty good results (given it was our fist time). Since there were so many different variations on how to make these, we thought we would take lessons from French pastry chef Geoffroy Chevallier at Le French Fix Patisserie in Halifax, NS. If Laduree and Pierre Herme were my favorite macarons of all time, why not learn from a French native! The first flavour we tried was vanilla with a pink exterior, and I’m hoping to continue perfecting my pastry skills to include flavours like black currant, matcha, sesame, etc.
If you’re interested in the specific recipe/instructions we used feel free to email me! Also, check out Le French Fix Patisserie’s website here. They have the cutest decor with the most scrumptious pastries (including a toffee chocolate mousse cake, my favourite)!
Look out for another valentines post coming soon ❤
