Raspberries and lemons, 5th Nov, 2010

I hope everyone enjoyed their macawrongs last week — they certainly sold like hotcakes! Now, please welcome the return of my macarons babies raspberry DAVID and a tweak of good ol' lemony LUCA! Tomorrow (Friday 5th Nov, 2010) brings you:

  • DAVID dark: dark chocolate ganache with raspberry. This is version 2, which I think is a little fruitier than last time (different ingredients, too). Might be a bit firm on a cool day.
  • LUCA: lovely lemon ganache in a chocolate shell (usually he comes in yellow, but I felt like doing chocolate shells this time).

Oh, and the shells have a new type of dot on them. Although there have been one or two café customers who thought the dot was a spot of mould and neatly nibbled around it, most of you know it's my brand on the shell. As warmer days have come along, the old dot ingredients were proving too soft to stay put neatly, so I've gone over to a new dot. It's flat and not always as bright (I'm still experimenting).

Note that the café now starts selling the macarons around 10am and there is usually a limit of four per person to be fair to everyone. For new visitors, the macarons tend to sell out within an hour sometimes a little slower.

    Today we went into Liaison for our weekly dose of Macarons and received a lovely surprise with the return of the long awaited return of Raspberry… but only to be very very quickly disappointed to discover that the said David Raspberry was as the french call 'finit'…. Macarons @ Liaison sold out in a mere 15 minutes today!!!
    with that said, Luca was magnifique… texture and combination of flavours- superb! Thank you!

    Welcome and I'm glad you enjoyed Luca! Pity about the raspberry, but I can assure you there'll be more raspberry over the next few weeks:)

    They really did sell out fast today! Must have been the sunny spring day!

    Finally, I got to try your macarons for the first time. I have to say they were very nice although the raspberry ones had a bit of air in the shells but the flavour was still quite nice. They weren't too sweet. I'll have to make a trip to buy your macarons more often from now on.
