It was January and Aly was obsessed with French macarons, not to be confused with macaroons which are disgusting cookies usually made with shredded coconut. The obsession began in August when she had the most beautiful, delicious French macarons from Chantal Guillon in the Hayes Valley. They were the fairest macarons in all the land with flavors including salted caramel, rose, hazelnut, pumpkin and more!
Days went by.. months went by… and Aly constantly thought about these bites of heaven and how she wished she could make her own. So as a new years resolution, she vowed to make at least ONE perfect French macaron. Then Aly’s sister Princess Deanna pointed out that one could be a complete fluke and made her revise it to one entire batch. So there it is… one year to make at least one batch of perfect French macarons. Stay tuned to find out if our Princess Aly was successful….
