Firstly, congratulations to Nadia on your massive acheivement!
Like many NZers on Sunday night, I sat glued to my TV watching to see what the dramatic final moments of Masterchef 2011 would bring. I watched in dispear as Jax macaroon tower collapsed to the floor. Oh the pain!
A macaroon tower is yet a long way off for me, but I was very, very impressed by the first attempts at macaroons by Nadia and Jax. Well done girls, an amazing effort!
I learnt two things on Sunday night:
- Watch, watch and watch…but don’t open the oven door, until you are ready to remove them. I really must get the lightbulb in my oven replaced.
- A blast freezer will help if the macaroons are slightly undercooked and sticking to the paper. Will a little longer in a chest freezer do the same?
