Macaron Class by Chef Nation

This post has been postponed for 2 months,but better late than never.. right? 🙂

Macaron class by Chef Nation was lead by Chef @odiedjamil – famous macaron chef in Jakarta and Chef @Saura_237. I adore her lemon pie, almond pound cake with lemon frosting etc…

The class was start without me, since I was came very late (20 minutes late) and no wonder they need to start on time. because Macaron need a quite long time to finished – especially with the humidity of Jakarta. Ok, this is the step by step…. hopefully I didn’t missed anything:

First, we prepare the almond and icing until mix well. You will see the color is well blend… Then put half of white eggs to almond and sugar, again mix well (clue: no shiny part as below). If you want to color your macaron, put the color paste at this step.

For meringue method: we beat the white eggs with low speed until half stiff. Meanwhile boil sugar & water up to 118C. Slowly, pour to white eggs and beat until stiff.–> just found out that this method called as italian meringue method. And this method is used by Pierre Herme… oowww

left - a failed meringue.

Divided three.. put one part at the time to almond, mix. Be careful to not over mix.

Fill a pastry bag/plastic with batter, pipe out around 4cm macaron with space 2 cm each on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Let macaron sheet for at least 2 hour in AC room – or until dry. Jakarta is very humid, so you have to put the baking sheet in cool room or it won’t dry.  At this step, we left our macaron and have a lunch break…. 😉

Baked macaron for 12 minutes in 180C heat. I almost had my tears when I see the “legs’ came out….. finally I can bake a perfect macaron hahahahaaha

Finally my macaron got legs 😀 so happy!!

Thank you @chefnation – Odie and Saura, it’s a fun class and both of you really shows your passion in baking…. envy!!  Now, let’s practice.. practice!!
