I have started a "Young Ladies Culinary Society" group to encourage and enable young ladies to aspire to greater culinary skills and abilities. We have been wanting to try macaron since the beginning but I have been here and done this and it is costly and daunting.
When I found Amoretti products listed in the "Resources" section of "Les Petits Macaron", I was dumbfounded by the scope of products as well as the reasonable cost of most items. I placed a small order immediately.
Our order came in several boxes, the last included several samples (very thoughtful). I purchased 5 compounds to use in shells, boysenberry, coffee, cappuccino tiramisu, passion fruit, and vanilla. The intensity of the flavors is dramatic and delightful to the palate. The recommended amount of compound per batch is 60 grams making the smaller sizes perfect for about 3 batches. Frankly, we will probably use only 40 grams because the flavors are so intense.
We are all excited for "the next time"!
