Yes, that Edd Kimber, the guy who won the Great British Bake Off hosted by Mel and Sue and judged by the Silver Fox and Nicholas Parsons's sister. A macaron class held by an official baking genius.
And yet I turn up late.
Next, Edd pipes perfect circles of macaron batter, spaced out so they don't merge into some kind of uberon.
Yea, verily, did I stick my face in the caramelly leftovers.
Verily, did I suck the clingfilm dry.
Edd now pipes the filling into each of the macaron shells.
Ta-daa - macarons from heaven.
And we all get doggy bags to take away.
Obviously, I'm being flippant (you know me) - in truth, Edd Kimber's macaron class was brilliant fun and very informative.
Edd's clearly a natural teacher and, most importantly, he understands the limits of a domestic cook and a domestic kitchen.
This was just a trial class, but Edd will be commencing hands-on workshops early next year.
