Christmas Giveaway of Mad About Macarons!

The Christmas Giveaway is now closed.
Winners will be announced shortly by Waverley Books.

The countdown is on. As the children are opening up their surprises in the Advent Calendar’s goody bags, it’s time for us to join in the fun.  It’s time for a Christmas giveaway!

Waverley Books are offering a copy of Mad About Macarons! to FIVE lucky readers this week. And it doesn’t matter where you live. They have been kind enough to open it up as an international giveaway.

For those of you who don’t have the book, there are 38 macaron recipes plus an annex containing recipe ideas to use up your egg yolks. There is an illustrated step-by-step guide in 6 pages explaining the basic macaron recipe. The book is full of tips, well over 100 macaron photos and serving suggestions for teas, coffees and wines to complement your home-made macarons (see Table of Contents.) Why not sample A Taste of Paris?

Don’t forget that all the macaron recipes are gluten-free. For macaronivores who already have the book, why not enter a friend who would love this as a gift?

How do you enter the international giveaway of Mad About Macarons? Dead easy.

Simply follow Le Blog by adding your email in the right hand column and you’ll never miss a blog post. If you’re on Facebook, ‘Like‘ Mad About Macarons. Already signed up for both? Then use your imagination: why not let as many friends who love macarons know about the book’s giveaway and what you like about the book. I’m not yet on Twitter, but why not tweet it amongst your friends, too?

Just leave a comment below telling us what you’ve done to enter the Giveaway and Waverley Books will pick your name at random.

The Christmas Giveaway ends Sunday 18th December 2011 midnight, Paris time.

Sorry, this Giveaway is now closed. But the book still lives on 😉

Now best get ready for a party tonight with these spiced chocolate orange Cointreau macarons above, plus chocolate glacial mint. Will do a Christmas macaron special for you on Monday, once I’ve recovered from entertaining 25 12-yr-olds!

      Thanks so much for your lovely comment but unfortunately the Giveaway has been closed for rather a long time since this was a post from last year. So sorry! It’s mentioned at the start of the post. Thanks for your support, though, and for your comment. It’s what keeps me motivated to post things!

    I am always on the hunt for new macaron recipes! I had the chance to try them while I was in Paris two summers ago and have been in love ever since. Just can’t seem to get mine to come out as good as the ones I had at there. I have subscribed to your mailing list and follow you on Facebook! Thank you for such an awesome giveaway! Happy Holidays 🙂

    I already have a copy but if I win, it will make a nice Christmas gift for my dear friend Shari – she introduced me to macarons at Laduree three years ago and I have been obsessed with them ever since!

    Please enter me in your contest! I am your newest follower here and have “liked” you on fb as well. My two daughters and I took our first trip to Paris last summer and fell in love with macarons. *swoon* Actually, we fell in love with Paris and macarons were just a part of that sweet experience.

    I don’t know when we will be able to return but until we do we’d love to be able to recreate some of those delicious little sweet bites from heaven.

    Thank you!

      Lovely to meet you virtually and hope you make it back to Paris again soon. At least you can make macarons with your daughters now for a sweet reminder!

      Love your post, Carol. Wish we had a Santacon in Paris, just like in NYC. Maple and bacon macarons, eh? Great idea – although already given the bacon as a try for an April Foolish moment with chocolate-bacon macarons – they were so good! Bacon and egg, eh? Hm. Egg is bland for a mac so why not add truffle, non? 😉

    Liked, subscribed, drooled just a tiny little bit. I actually have this book… I LOVE it. It would be great to be able to give a copy to a friend who loves baking as much as I do.
