Chocolate Cherry Ganache (Macaron Filling)
Welcome to the month of June! It’s hard to imagine summer is nearly upon us after four days of persisting rain – we’ve had more in one day in Paris than we would have in a month! Roland Garros tennis matches have been postponed (the first time in 16 years), and today it took us forever in traffic on a normally fast school run with some flooded roads closed; add some trains striking and it’s all quite chaotic. The good news is it’s all short term: I hear the rain stops on Friday, just in time for a deliciously fun chocolate and pastry walk in Paris to kick off the weekend!
My lovely friends at La Cuisine Paris cookery school had a great idea to cheer us up: with the first of the juicy cherries arriving in the farmers’ markets around Paris, we shared this batch of bright cherry macarons with their newsletter subscribers. Their newsletter is impressive; it’s packed with all sorts of What’s On in Paris, a cheese of the month, and many more delicious features. I’ve only just started out with mine and so am still teething but will get mine out by Friday for you!
I can hear the rain pelting on the windows again but no rain can dampen our spirits with a splash of Kirsch in this wicked dark chocolate and cherry ganache!
