It's with heavy heart that I announce that macaron production has already drawn to a close, at least for now. [SEE UPDATE AT END] The technical constraints of a small, busy commercial kitchen have turned out to be too great for regular, high-quality patisserie work. While I know some people will miss my macarons, remember that Jackie and Simon at EARL Canteen will of course be serving customers lots of other great food from their menu! They have an impressive dining concept and I wish them success.
As mentioned on my article about the macaron project, Jackie's interest and enthusiasm was instrumental in persuading me to start macaron production, so it is sad that things have had to wind up so soon. Supplies of macarons at EARL Canteen will probably last for a few weeks after the date of this announcement, but check with them if you want to know if a specific flavour is on sale on a certain day.
I'm off very soon for a short (but long-planned) holiday and when I return I'll explore options for making this project work in another context.
Thanks for your overwhelming enthusiasm for my product (especially those Twittererers out there!). I put a lot of care into trying to deliver flavours that were interesting and well executed, and I'm glad so many people enjoyed them. Perhaps there'll be more eventually!
