I've always wanted to learn how to make macarons, and what a better time than to do it with my avid baker friend, R. We used a chocolate macaron recipe from the book 'Mad about Macarons' by Jill Colonna but backed it up by watching a youtube video by Ochikeron to make sure we got the techniques right. And yes, it worked. After a few hours of hard work and anxiety, the macarons came out of the oven and they had feet, looked and tasted great! We then had some for tea time and I raided my friend's kitchen for tableware to put together a little food styling shoot.

I definitely want to make more in a lot of other different flavours. Any flavours I should try?
