Macaron Success! Or, Salted Popcorn Macarons and Zumbo

Finally, I managed to get them to work for me:

Salted Popcorn Macarons from Zumbo! 🙂 I bought the book this morning, and I absolutely had to try to make some macarons, lets not worry about that physics assignment I have due on Tuesday…

I was meant to make some other savoury food today buuuut… I didn’t. I pretty much spent my entire Sunday in my pyjamas baking. I regret nothing.

Now, I’m not so sure about posting recipes from books on the internet – where I can’t link to it and the original publisher can’t ask me to take it down if they don’t want it there, so I suppose I’ll leave it there today 🙂 Not so keen on Monday tomorrow, but at least I spent my Sunday well 🙂

  1. Instead of posting the recipe, perhaps you could tell us why you think these macarons were better than your previous experiments?

    • Because they worked O.o I’m not sure why though – I followed the recipes exactly each time. These macarons are based on an italian macaron though, which is a bit more work, but made the batter super smooth and shiny, so less bubbles = success 🙂

      • I believe that to become a good cook, it helps to understand why some recipes work and some don’t. I started cooking following recipes exactly, and by now I mostly use recipes as inspiration and do what feels right, unless it really seems the recipe writer knew what (s)he’s doing 😉

      • Yeah – I tend to experiment more with things I’m more confident with, but macarons and I are not friends. I hope that one day I’ll be as confident as you are in the kitchen 🙂 thankyou for the good advice

      • Thanks, you still have plenty of time as I started cooking when you weren’t born yet and I’m not even old. At least I don’t think so 🙂 (I’m 38)
