Happy 1st of December! The official countdown to Christmas 2017 is on!
2017 has personally been a tough year for me and you may have noticed the decreased number of posts… Yet I wanted to thank you all for being there, for sending your questions and comments and for all the likes across the social media. Pastry-vise I had some great experiences this year including getting my Pastry Chef certificate in February, completing an advanced pastry class in August and an unforgettable 4-day enteremets, petit gateaux, tarts and viennoiserie course at the Ecole Bellouet Conseil in Paris, in November.
As may know macarons are my great passion and I got very inspired after tasting some of the world famous Parisian macarons from the incredible chef Pierre Hermé and some classics of the macaron specialist and cutest tea room of Ladurée.
I’ve already done a few batches of macarons since I got back and first I absolutely wanted to share this green beauty. After all green is one of the colours of the season, isn’t it?
Kaffir lime is a citrus fruit from the tropical Asia. It has an aromatic, astringent flavour that pairs beautifully, I think, with dark chocolate. As you can see from the pictures, I did some tiny sugar coated macarons too. They are beautiful used as cake decorations but I couldn’t resist filling some too. Aren’t they just adorable?
