Taught me how to make macarons! Real macarons! With gorgeous fluffy insides!
Besides the great macaron recipe, this book explains all about cooking with sugar and includes great recipes for caramels, candies and mousses.

Great gift from my mom! So far, I’ve only tried one recipe, the Maple Syrup & Walnut Ice Cream, but the book contains great ideas and suggestions.
