Deliciously starting the week with a difficult task, I was adamant to at least have one batch of the Macarons right, out of the three that I baked. With lot of motivation from my Facebook friends and Polly, I did succeed considering this was my first ever attempt!
What I learnt from my experience with Macarons that no one will tell you:
Don’t ever grind the almond flour too much, it will turn into a paste.
Folding the batter just right is the most important.
Rest the beauties for at least 20 minutes before baking them.
Always use the top flame if you have a gas oven and keep checking every 3 minutes or this is what you will get!
In the longest time I can remember this happening, the entire last week saw home delivered food or eating out at to go places every single day because I was taking care of the little one who wasn’t well and later in the week, it was passed on to me.
We are a family that puts food on the top – in sickness too. The week kick started with breakfast at Shakespeare and Co. and included superb mixed Saj with Cafe Mocha – It was delectable.
I can write about food everyday. Not always being able to share the food love with you each time I think of it is disappointing. Starting today, there will be a summary once a week with minimal words and more pictures giving you a little insight before you read the detailed review later and I’ll call this little space – What’s on the menu? (WOTM).
What started off as a very nervous and anxious day on Saturday last week ended with a fun packed full house of successful first #FoodBloggersQTRMeet held at Four Seasons Hotel. A bit of an achievement as it was my first as an event organizer too. Here are some pictures from the fabulous meet and the amazing food bloggers in the country!
