Bonus Batch: French Patisserie Woes


Luisa: By now our listeners will know that I find French desserts very intimidating! My first attempts at puff pastry nearly made me cry. Making macarons always feels like a mystery-will they turn out lovely or will I get a hollow mess? I was so proud of my chocolate croissants from Season 1, but I often wonder if I'll ever be able to recreate them successfully. Despite my patisserie anxiety I find myself keep trying to make French bakes. In this episode I made a rough puff after swearing I that puff pastry was now my enemy! What is it about French desserts that are so addicting, I wonder? Perhaps its just the awe of how beautiful and delicate they are, or maybe it's simple the rush that many bakers feel when they nail something so technically complicated. All I know is that after my tarte tatin disaster I'll probably swear off French bakes for a month or two, only to eventually find myself longingly researching and bookmarking new tarte tatin recipes to tackle. I just can't stay away!
