There is this place in Georgetown, DC that my husband LOVE going to. It’s located along M St NW and Potomac St NW, called ‘Olivia Macaron‘.My husband would always bring home a 12 piece box of assorted goodness.. just so I wouldn’t yell at him for coming home late.
Now, I’ve had macaron from other shops around the DC, metropolitan area before HOWEVER,….I must say Olivia’s are the best that I’ve had so far. Everything else were history.
I’ve been looking for a book on macarons, to take with me to Japan.
There was one in particular that I kept in my amazon basket for ….a really long time but, couldn’t get myself to spend that much on a book ($45.00), compared to others that was so much more cheaper. BUT, I’M SO GLADE I MADE THE SPLURGED!!
Pierre Herme is such a creative patissier. I just love looking at his edible art pieces!.
The book is a hard cover, with over 60 super interesting and gorgeous photos and recipes.
The book is very well presented with a bit of background history of the master and how he came about with his creations, with thorough instructions for each of the recipes.
The recipes are categorized into different groups such as, new classics, the ‘Jardins’, etc.
Although, I can’t give my thoughts on how it taste since, I haven’t tested the recipes out yet.
But, I trust Pierre Herme to not disappoint and, I can’t wait to try all of them out soon!.
