Coffee Macarons

Coffee Macarons

i was totally intrigued by the coffee & chicory macarons that helen of tartelette made and toyed with the idea of doing the same too. of late i find myself being very fascinated with brush stroke patterns on plates/food etc. my first "encounter" was at 7atenine, where almost all the dishes were swiped with squid ink. then when i bought johnny iuzzini's dessert fourplay, i was even more amazed at the fluid gels on the plated desserts. i vowed to do the same. and my first attempt is with these macarons. since i was doing my macaron orders, i thought no harm making an additional batch to try out :p seriously, i think they look MUCH better than piped lines & flowers. piping is so passé. i wish i hv a dehydrator so i can make my own dehydrated fruits and then grind them into powders. a sprinkle of raspberry/strawberry powder on macarons will look darn cool too.

there are two firsts for me, namely attempting brush stroke patterns, and also sandwiching the macarons with coffee white choc ganache instead of buttercream. they taste awesome!! i think in future i will just replace all buttercream with a flavored white choc ganache instead. buttercream tastes really cheap and greasy, only thing the ganache is kinda sweet. hmm.
