Opening the box

Ha!! excitement!

8 days ago, I saw this book on bookdepository and they have it in English. like.. Woohh!! I must get it, regardless. EArly this year, I almost had the chance to taste Laduree’s macarons as I had a friend coming back from France. But she said the shop was too far away from her, so she couldn’t go. But she bought me a box from another shop. amazing. After conversion of euro to ringgit, each macaron was about RM11-12, and considering they are biteful morsels, each bite costs u RM3,that is if you eat with 4 bites. Haha

Anyways, lo and behold, they’re just behind me, the recipe I mean. Hehehe

Actually it’s more like a collectibles’ item. It comes in a very elegant box. Like as if there are  chocolates hiding inside instead!!

Open up, and there’s a lilac-lavender purple lining. It’s suede covered. Confirm not kitchen friendly. Put it in a sacred place where no wet hands or chocolate stained fingers can reach it 😛

Now now now,

Which should I make first…

The book mainly consists French pastries and cakes. IT definitely ring some bells to me and brings back good memories during my time in Le Cordon Bleu. like, why Hello butter! 🙂

    I know this book is causing a bit of an excitement be quite honest, I saw the book and have not been very excited by it. Maybe because I already have a few Japanese French pastry books that have equally delectable fare… But it is a pretty book to have on the shelf… And I am waiting for my cookbooks to arrive 🙂

  2. Seeing you and Shirley getting so good cook books, I going to buy one too, hehehe..i never bought an expensive cook books before..Ya, about Szechuan peppercorns, you can easily get it from those Chinese shops where they selling Chinese medicines and herbs.

    I love macarons! Did you ever try those from Pierre Hermé? They are the most delicious! But I agree that those from Ladurée are also great. Those from Pierre Hermé are very often more unconventionell. So when ever you have the opportunity to get some macarons from Herme or Laduree: take them!
