    Oh la la mademoiselle! So pretty and what a lovely combination. You are really enjoying the Ottolenghi cookbook:)

    As I told you already- It is very bewildering how the same batch cooked on the same sheet in the same oven can yield so many varying results!!!

  2. The Cooking Ninja says:

    Those look gorgeous. I got to try my macs at different temperature. It seems this time around it doesn't work for me at 150°C. Strange!

  3. Jamie says:

    Oh man, Deeba, they are perfect! You have achieved Macperfection! All the effort and diligence paid off! Yay! And I love love love the flavor! Wow clever you! So I guess since both you and Meeta used the Ottolenghi recipe I will too! Ottolenghi Sistahs forever!

    my friend just got back from Paris and had some Lauduree Macarons that she said were to die for. these look spectacular!

  5. Happy cook says:

    I tried three times last week and it was a disaster. Now i am tempted to try this recipe.
    Yes for Mac 4 as for 3 I am grazefully bowing out.
    Yours just look perfect . I i like that you said it is not sweet as the macs before.

  6. You've brought on a macaron craving! and i <3 your white tea/cocoa cup!

  7. Snooky doodle says:

    wow these are perfect. All my attempts so far have failed miserably. I d like to try again though

  8. Rosa's Yummy Yums says:

    Gorgeous Macarons Deeba!

  15. Sarah, Maison Cupcake says:

    These macarons look beautiful, I love all of your photos. I must get myself a copy of this Ottolenghi cookbook as I have heard so many great things about it. I have had a couple of trays were just a few macs had feet, it's very strange as I know my first ever batch had feet all over the tray. Thank you for all your encouragement with mine too. Hopefully next time I will find my feet too.

  16. Barbara Bakes says:

    Sounds like your new year started off right. Gorgeous macs and another beautiful post!

  20. AmuseboucheUK says:

    Great Job – they are nearly yards rather than feet!

  21. Nicisme says:

    Oh wow! You did great with these, and those feet are worthy of a pair of Manolo Blahniks, lol!

  22. Mowie @ Mowielicious says:

    Deeba – such lovely Macs! And I love the Happy Feet quote at the top (love the movie!). Can't wait for the Mac Attack round up! Lots of love xxx

  23. Bellini Valli says:

  28. Barbara says:

    Congratulations, Deeba. I'd say your macarons win first prize! They are picture perfect. I really, really have to get the Ottolenghi cookbook.

  29. lovely feet and all!!!

  30. Dragana says:

    Deeba, you blogging is unbelievable! How do you do the feet? So cute! Thanks for the beautiful pictures and recipe.

  31. Donna-FFW says:

    Oh they look beautiful!!

  32. foodie ffanatic says:

    Beautiful, happy feet! I still have not attempted macs. I will probably try them first at my daughter's house since she had such good results on only her second try. (Plus then I can leave them there – if they are at my apartment I won't be able to resist.) Your photographs are stunning, as always. *hugs* to you darling Deeba! See you on Twitter. Dani

  33. Fantastic macs! Do you open the mac course? I want lessons! :)

  34. Happy cook says:

    Did this recipe and it came out really well. Happy feet dancing 😉

  35. oh they look always!

  36. pigpigscorner says:

    Oh and your macarons! I'm so jealous!

  37. Helene says:

    Happy New Year to you and your family. These macarons are pure joy. Love the pictures.

    Beautiful macarons and very well photographed! The shape and the feet are perfect -)

    Sawadee from Bangkok,

  40. Wonderful set of macarons photographs. You are truly a talented baker, and photographer Deeba.

  41. MaryMoh says:

    That looks perfect to me….gorgeous and delicious!

  42. Muneeba says:

    You took the leap into some unknown territory and looks like it paid off! Isn't that just the best feeling?! Kudos on the super gorgeous pics too! (loving the pop from the red flower)

  43. i love your patience and tenacity in taking so many lovely pics! have you heard of Chalmer's ganache! You'll love next time you make these.

  44. They look fantastic! The nut flour with chocolate ganache sounds delicious too. Great job figuring out what worked with these!

  45. lisa @ dandysugar says:

    Oh, you gorgeous macaron maker, you! These are beautiful–love the flavors. Hope you had a great holiday. Happy New Year!

  46. michael says:

    These are awesome macarons you made. Thank you for sharing with us your recipe as when I try to make my version of macaron, it always turns out to be hard. How can you make it chewy? I would really want to bake a perfect macaron one of this days which goes well with a cup of coffee. Great posts and very nice photography. Thanks!

  47. Just chanced across your blog today. Glad to see such a wonderful Indian baker!! And thank you for all those eggless recipes!! What do you think is a good cream cheese substitute? We do get Philadelphia cream cheese in mumbai but I wouldn't want to buy anything so expensive for trying out something amateur. Can you help?

  48. those mac photos are simply stunning. Love all the shots and not only are the pictures perfect, the Macs are too!!

  49. Eisley Jacobs says:

    They do look beautiful! But I am so not a macaron maker… In fact, I don't even think I have ever eaten one!

    But it almost makes me want to try… almost. LOL I hate failure in the kitchen 😉

  50. Jeanne @ Cooksister! says:

    Wow – it's just mac mania out there 😉 Yours look just perfect Deeba, and such a clever use of the stuff from our goodie bags!

  51. Avanika [YumsiliciousBakes] says:

    I'm in awe of how you always turn out great looking macs.. I hate failing in the kitchen, maybe that's why I haven't tried these yet!

  52. SavoringTime in the Kitchen says:

    I just found your blog through Christie at The Table Runner. I am so impressed with your macaroons! I have been wanting to try them but haven't gotten the courage yet. I think the recipe you shared sounds wonderful!

  53. StickersLover says:

    wow! its simply beautiful the way it looks!
