"Heide, every single recipe I've seen has different baking advise/temperature/times...  There is just no agreement on this cookie.  If there was, the MOF's would all have one procedure.  At any rate, re the Italian meringue…"

"I phrased that incorrectly. I heat the oven to 200c, turn off the heat and put the macarons in the oven to dry but I find the residual heat too strong. Is it because it is a gas oven I wondered. Then I removed a test tray and found they had…"

"So, 200f, my 100 c, turn off the oven and put sheet in, letting dry, with oven door closed. crust forms, turn up heat with them still in the same oven. In July, I test ran three methods following them to the tee, taking into account longer drying…"

"No.  Do not bake at 140 until the feet form.  In "my method," which  is from La Duchesse Anne Patisserie in Saumur, Chef Christian Godineau -- there is no baking at all in the drying period.  None.  The batter is…"

"Yes i saw it in your book. 100 % oven drying cracked mine-I keep wondering why it works so well for Zumbo and Herme kitchens. 100 % open air drying has taken as long as two hours with the dehumidfyer on in the kitchen so I will try half and half as…"

"If you're drying at room temperature, you're not following the best trick I ever came across.  I've looked at, or cooked about 70 different chef's recipes.  Half dry in the oven, half at room temperature.  The oven…"

"I will do both,t ake photos and different methods and get back to you. I often worry it is my method. I lack confidence which is bizarre because I actually studied macarons in Paris for three days and felt really confident. Right now I have…"

"Another approach you can try is pipe while preheating to 425.  Put in shells.  Leave door cracked open (maybe 3") and turn off heat.  Check in about 10-12 minutes...  Kind of energy wasting, but works for some.  Cracks…"

"I now own more books on macaron making than I am proud to admit. Having to make them regularly for the restaurant, I continue to struggle-mostly with the oven and oven temperature and time. I use an old deck oven. Having used this book as well,…"
