Macarooning

My colleague Cheryl and I signed up for a macaroon demo and baking class via Groupon and we attended the lesson today.
Organisation was a little slack by the coordinator, but the demo itself was by a proper chef in an actual kitchen. The class size was a bit large though and we had to be teamed up in 4s and 5s for the hands-on bit.
Our team’s end result was a little flat though the taste is there. 
Picked up some useful information and tips and am inspired to make some at home now! I tried a chocolate recipe not long ago and failed so hopefully I can avoid whatever mistakes I made then. Will keep trying till I perfect it, have a 1kg bag of ground almonds lying around…that will go a long way!
