I still remember the first time I tasted a macaron. It was served as part of a petit fours selection alongside the most gorgeous looking chocolatey treats. I wasn't sure what to expect and my natural tendancy with deserts is usually to go for chocolate, then chocolate, then chocolate with an occasional tiramisu lapse. So, having left this 'unknown' until last, I was pleasantly surprised to discover it's smooth, light, melt in the mouth deliciousness. The one I tried had a wonderful raspberry flavour and was filled with a vanilla ganache.
Since that first taste, I'm not embarassed to say that I have developed a little weakness for these fabulous eats and have discovered many others who are similarly smitten - including Reshmi Bennett.
Reshmi started the artisan macaron boutique Anges de Sucre upon her return from Paris having trained in French Cuisine and worked under a multi-Michelin starred chef. Anges de Sucre macarons have been much sought after in the fashion and wedding world, having been selected by Vivienne Westwood and featured in various magazines including Brides and Wedding.The mouth watering range of flavours and the rainbow of colours available from Anges de Sucre include Rosemary Vanilla, Mojito, Indian Masala Chai.
Macarons are a perfect stylish addition to any sweet table but they are also available in delicious savoury flavours too! They are perfect for gifts and wedding or party favours or why not consider a macaron tower as an alternative to a traditional wedding cake?
Reshmi will be hosting macaron magic classes at the Cake and Bake Show in Manchester in April so if you're going to the show, pop in and sample these delicious delights!
Until next time.....
