There are times when I have to pinch myself. How lucky can I get? Times when you just don't take things for granted!
I'm talking about last Monday, when I attended a class at LeNotre.
We learned so many tricks and techniques, I couldn't write fast enough! I had a fun group, a French woman who lived in Miami translated all the fine points that I would have lost. The chef was great and even passed on more recipes for us to take home. I couldn't wait to try my hand at home.
The last time I attended a class at LeNotre, I didn't come home and make the pastry and now, I've lost all the secrets and wouldn't want to attempt it till I go to another class. The class was Puff Pastry Inversee'. A tough technique.
After this class, I gathered the ingredients and made the Macarons and I was darned proud of the results.
Take a look at the single Macaron, that is mine!
Enjoy the photos!
