Thanks @omggimmenow for the A+ macarons at my book signing today. The chocolate one was just about the PERFECT texture.twitpic.com/4hvm6y"
I have to admit that ever since I went to Sydney to try Adriano Zumbo's famed and delicious macarons, I have become slightly (ok, VERY) obsessed with these sweet delights and have been wanting to learn the art of making macarons. What gave me a further drive was visiting La Belle Miette in Melbourne and appreciating some of the ones they made. The shop has only been open for a few months and is already building a pretty good reputation among fellow foodie bloggers. The lady shop owner also claimed their macarons were 'the best in Australia, even better than Zumbo's!'. That, I would disagree. There's just something about Adriano Zumbo's macarons that make those tiny little gems stand out from the rest! But then again, it all boils down to personal preference :-) .Time for show and tell!

And now...my attempts at making macarons as delicious as Adriano Zumbo and La Belle Miette... Ta daa!
The lemon tea macarons were a surprising hit with my friends and family. The macaron shell had a fragrant tea flavour with a tangy lemon cream wedged in between. Refreshing just like a cup of lemon tea :-)
Now that I'm on a roll making macarons I would love to make them in other yummy flavours! I don't suppose you guys, my readers, have any suggestions for flavours? If so, I would love to hear from you!
