Siew-Chinn Chin's Macarons should clearly be on everyone's list of not-to-be missed treats in the Bay.
This crazy Malaysian cook has worked in the Chez Panisse pastry department for years, and sugar-spoiling friends and family for much longer. While she makes a mean organic dog biscuit and an unforgettable meringue, die-hard sweet-tooths will be particularly in love with her rendition of these French gems.
Queens of the Parisian patisserie, Macarons are tricky to make at all, much less to make well. At their best, they have a delicate, almond cookie exterior which gives way with crackling satisfaction to a melting, buttery core, ripe with flavor. Complex in texture and bright in taste, they are indulgence at its most sophisticated.
The next Pop-Up General Store, Wednesday, June 30th from 5pm-7pm, will feature Siew-Chinn's Macarons in Raspberry and Chocolate-Espresso. Don't miss out! Pre-order or stop by for your taste of heaven.
