Tau macaroon, nggak? Ini sebenarnya mirip-mirip merengue yang terbuat dari putih telur yang dikocok sampai kaku. Biasanya dicampur gula, biar manis, terus dipanggang. Karena terbuat dari putih telur aja, dan nggak pakai tepung, adonannya ringan, dan begitu ditaruh di atas lidah… langsung meleleh, deh! Biasanya merengue nggak ada filling/isinya, jadi katakanlah macaroon itu semacam merengue yang pakai macam-macam filling πŸ˜€

Karena di Le Codefin, Kemang, ada yang jualan macaroon, saya dan Nena nggak tahan untuk nggak beli. Lihat saja, bentuk dan warnanya imut-imut begitu!

Ini macaroon yang brand-nya Maca Express; harganya 10ribu sekeping. Cih. Lumayan mahal, mengingat betapa kecil ukurannya, dan betapa cepat dia akan meleleh di dalam mulut. Tapi, sudahlah, akhirnya kami tergoda membeli 5 keping: rasa green tea, peach, strawberry, blueberry, dan passion fruit.

Buat yang masih penasaran soal macaroon, penjelasan panjang tentang macaroon bisa dibaca di artikel Wikipedia ini:

The word macaroon is applied to a variety of light, baked confections, described as either small cakes or meringue-like cookies depending on their consistency. The original macaroon was a “small sweet cake consisting largely of ground almonds”[1] similar to Italian amaretti. Today, other common varieties include the coconut macaroon and the French macaroon or macaron, which can have various flavourings and is typically cream-filled.

The English word macaroon and French macaron come from the Italian maccarone or maccherone. This word is itself derived from ammaccare, meaning crush or beat,[2] used here in reference to the almond paste which is the principal ingredient.

Most recipes call for egg whites (usually whipped to stiff peaks), with ground or powdered nuts, generally almond or coconut. Almost all call for sugar. Macaroons are commonly baked on edible rice paper placed on a baking tray.

Do you often find yourself feeling guilty about taking some time to rest? "We all need rest, not because it makes us more productive at our jobs, but because it makes us happier, healthier, more well-rounded people," wrote Homan.

While most of us think of the past as something that happens behind us and the future lies ahead of us, for the Aymara people, it's the other way around. The Aymara people see the past as something that lies ahead of us, and the future as something that lies behind us.
