Le Jour du Macaron

by - 16:04

EN: I wanted to write about Paris for a while now but couldn't decide which topic should get the priority for my first blog entry. I thought it could be the Eiffel Tower I have fallen in love with, but decided otherwise. Today is the official day of Macarons "Le Jour du Macaron" and France is famous for its Macarons all over the world. The two best known makers are Ladurée and Pierre Hermé. 
For those who don't know, Macaron is a sweet meringue-based confectionery usually filled with ganache, buttercream or jam. Only Ladurée sells fifteen thousand Macarons a day! The one on Champs-Élysées is definitely worth a visit. Clicking on this link, you will find yourself inside this amazing store and experience its atmosphere, if only through the computer screen. To make Macarons, you need egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond and food colouring. I tried some from Ladurée but Pierre Hermé ones are yet to be discovered. It is the Day of Macarons after all and they have my initials, so I take it as a sign :) 
P.S.: I found this Macaron Recipe with tips from people who tried to make some and didn’t succeed (probably not the easiest dessert to make). I always like to read comments as I can learn from the mistakes of those who tried it before. Bon Appétit!

SK: Chcela som zacat pisat o Parizi uz hodnu chvilku, len som sa nevedela rozhodnut ktorej teme dam prioritu. Najprv som si myslela, ze by to mala byt Eiffelova veza do ktorej som sa uplne zamilovala, ale rozhodla som sa inak. Dnes je totizto oficialny den macaronov "Le jour du Macaron" a Francuzsko je zname svojimy macaronmy po celom svete. Dvaja najznamejsi vyrobcovia su Ladurée a Pierre HerméPre tych, ktori nevedia co to macarony su, v skratke poviem ze su to "sladke pusinky" plnene kremom alebo marmeladou. Ladurée preda okolo patnast tisic macaronov za den! Navstivit Ladurée na Champs-Élysées stoji rozhodne za to. Kliknutim na tento odkaz sa ocitnete vo vnutry tohto uzasneho obchodu a hned pocitite jeho atmosferu, aj ked len cez obrazovku pocitaca. Na ich vyrobu budete potrebovat bielka, praskovy cukor, krystalovy cukor, mandlovy prasok alebo nasekane mandle a farbivo do jedla. Uz som ochutnala macarony z Ladurée ale tie od Pierre Hermé som este neskusila a kedze je den macaronov, tak to beriem ako znamenie a idem si hned par kupit. :)

Dobru chut!
