Giveaway #61 - Squires Kitchen's Guide to Making Macaroons - closed - winner @sandyhallett


Move over cupcakes, the mac is back! Macaroons have made a huge comeback, appearing in bakeries everywhere and even starring in Hollywood movies. Find out how to make your own scrumptious bite-sized treats to impress your guests with Squires Kitchen's Guide to Making Macaroons by Mark Tilling (B. Dutton Publishing).



Pastry chef and chocolatier, Mark Tilling, presents a wide variety of flavour and colour combinations so your macaroons will look and taste absolutely irresistible.

The recipes are followed by 20 ingenious ideas for all kinds of occasions: if you're throwing a children's party, you could create colourful lollipops, a spectacular macaroon tower centrepiece or even a burger and fries made entirely from macaroon mix. Maybe you're hosting a dinner party, in which case you could whip up some savoury canap├ęs such as smoked salmon and cream cheese macaroons, an impressive giant macaroon dessert, or a twist on tradition with after-dinner macs.

For something extra special, how about champagne macaroons or perfect pearls for wedding favours, or you could even create a stunning macaroon wedding cake. Not forgetting afternoon tea, where you could bake a batch of adorable Victoria sponge or carrot cake mini macs.

Whatever the occasion, you're sure to find some creative inspiration in this contemporary and unique guide to making macaroons.

Squires Kitchen's Guide to Making Macaroons by Mark Tilling is published on 11th March 2011 by B. Dutton Publishing Ltd., RRP £12.99.
