Mighty Macaron Baking Class by Rohani Jelani, Bayan Indah Culinary Resort, Sungai Pencala(near TTDI/Damansara Perdana)
Went for Rohani Jelani’s class using a gift voucher given by friend, macaron have always fascinates me and it is THE dessert that i wish i could make and it is also the one recipe which i will not want to venture in on my own, it just looks so impeccably fine and delicate. Heard of the famous macaron from France’s Pierre Herme’s store and upscaled bakery store in Paris called Lauduree, finally putting my hands on macaron making. Before this day, i only had macaron once, i think bought from Delicious in 1 Utama, and have never thought of making them because it just seems to far out of my league. With the experienced and cool chef like Rohani, i managed to make one batch successfully, smooth top, and with “foot”

Finished basic butter cream, there is loads of butter going into this, it doesn’t taste like butter however, just taste deliciously creamy and nice, I didn’t even know i had down 4 macarons with loads of butter in it during tasting time… hahaha, they are just delicious, maybe a little too sweet, however this is how macaron suppose to be: sweet and very colorful, the sweetness can’t be help as it need sugar to hold its structure… making macaron is like science, everything must be exact and precise.

Macaron is not an easy thing to make, it is more than meet the eye recipe, and weighing each ingredients accurately, most importantly the techniques which is best learnt thru hands on experience.
