MACAROON

12/03/11 - 11:41 - In: Food

THIS week I made my first macroon – WOHO – with lime and raspberry flavor! They turned out absolutely amazing (or at least flavor wise). I mean it will for sure take a while before I’m a pro but I think this was pretty good for being my first attempt. Check it out and let me know if you have any tips for the future macaroon fabrique!

1.macaroons

Beat the egg whites (with absolutely NO egg yellows) with an electric beater until it’s frothy (lot’s of bubbles). Toss the grounded almond and icing sugar in a small blender. Mix it all and add wished caramel color – red for raspberry and green for lime.

2.

Once satisfied with the color of the shells pipe the macaroons over fold and let it sit for a few minutes.

3.

During this time heat oven to 150°C. Once ready, put your macaroons at the very bottom shelf. Bake for 6-10 minutes.

4. Make the ganache (just mix below ingredienses until your happy with the flavor – not too runny, not too hard).

5. Take out the macaroons from the oven and let them cool down before removing them. Pipe the raspberry and lime ganache on the macaroon shell respectively, close with another macaroon shell.

BRUSSELS

12/03/05 - 11:37 - In: Brussels

TEEN years ago we were 15 classmates from my high school deciding on going to Brussels – within just five weeks we would to complete an entire school year of French. IMPRESSIVE intense (read French school systems)! So we’re in our second year and I can’t believe our parents are letting us go… But of course as always with school the nerdy side of me somehow made me pass the Delf certificates and as a plus I learned how to like beer. Duvel soon became my favorite – if not in old town at a spinning floor (yes it’s a Belgium thing almost like a carousel with a Chicago feel to it – dont ask why but it’s awesome) we spent most of our time downtown and in the club Louise Gallery (okay we’re talking teen years ago now so if you dare even to say anything I kill you). What else? I shared room with Carro and Lollo in a three floor apartment with the sweetest host family ever, not far from Schuman station – where the European Parliament headquarter is located. Beside that we visit Antwerpen – which is a MUST for any fashion deek (I wish I had studied or at least spent one or two years there). Then we saw Brough that’s way overrated (s o r r y). Because in the end it all comes down their amazing Belgium chocolate, waffles and perfect sized city… Not to forget Waterloo probably has the most beautiful mansions ever seen with its great history. J’adore tout! Check out my old school photos, bisou!

ONE of my favorite interior store in Stockholm is by far Svenskt Tenn. Especially now when they rebuilt their shop on Strandvägen – way bigger. Today I got played by Josef Frank’s different pattern game on mahogany cabinet – the one you see above. A time when Frank got inspired by Great Britain, 1934-35 . Isn’t she seductively irresistible? Whether you got the cash or not don’t forget to pop by their new fab tea salong – the Swedish answer to Ladurée (that’s btw soon coming to Stockholm too), X
