jamie; the man behind the macarons February 12 2011
"I have always been interested in food. As a young boy, I watched my mother and grandmother cook in the kitchen and prepare dishes which sparked my interest with cooking and baking.
I remember making my first batch of macarons three years ago as a welcome home surprise / birthday cake replacement for my older sister. After days of research, painstaking work and grueling sweat, I attempted making 6 different colours and flavours. Needless to say, I failed. . . and ended up having to make the birthday cake.
Being a person who loves to take on a challenge, my failed attempt made me want to strive to perfect this classic French dessert.
Over the years, I’ve continued to experiment and develop my macaron making skills, working with different flavour combinations and colours at every possible occasion (spiced pumpkin pie macarons at Halloween, dark chocolate peppermint mocha at Christmas, matcha green tea with black sesame for the weekend… you get the idea…). Thankfully my friends and family enjoy eating them as much as I love creating them."
think special occassions, he's up for special orders! his big sister and big brother are here for the weekend helping him out - love this sibling business...
