    Hi CarolineI have a bit of a passion for macaroons and make them all the time.My recipe is here; is incredibly easy.I like mine crisp on the outside and chewy in the centre.The French seem to like them looking more like Pavlovas.

    Thanks for that recipe, Martin. It looks much better than the one that I used and it’s always handy to have way of using up the egg whites immediately. Where do you stand on the subject of coconut macaroons? They were the ones that I used to make as a child, probably because they were cheaper than the almond ones!

    Hmm. I’m not a great fan of coconut, the bits always get stuck in my teeth. Now Hazelnut Macaroons I love and you can buy ground hazelnuts here in France, in Ireland I used (on occasion) roast peel and grind them myself for the treat.
