The making of the crunchy meringue
First, our pastry virtuoso mixes the almond powder with powdered sugar to form a subtle powder. At the same time, in a separate bowl, he beats his egg whites to a velvety consistency.
Our pastry chef adds his caster sugar to the mixture, then whips it until the sugar is completely integrated.
From then on, it's a question of dexterity and precision. He incorporates the first preparation into his whites, which have been previously beaten into snow, to finally create his pastry. The preparation is almost finished: it remains to form macarons in small diameters on a plate ready to be put in the oven.
Once out of the oven, the smooth meringues with their famous collar are ready to receive the ganache, the main element of the macaron. And here we are, sharing the well-kept secret of how Fauchon macarons are made.
The addition of the sweet ganache
The baked cookie is just waiting to be wrapped in its delicious ganache. To do this, our Mozart of pastry-making begins to decorate the bottom shell with the filling of his choice. All he has to do is carefully blend the liquid cream, butter and syrup if it is a fruity preparation (for example raspberry syrup for a raspberry macaroon).
