one of our vendors, Mercedes White of Mercedes Macarons has perfected the art of the macaron cookie for Utah's staggering altitude. when she offered to teach a class to a few bloggers, i jumped on it! it was such a fun evening, and here's a little video for you to see by Collin Kartchner Studios: the best part of the whole thing is Mercedes will be selling pre-made mixes so you can try at home (and she promises to help you along the way) or you can set up a class for you and a few friends to learn like we did! and of course she'll be selling macarons, all at Bijou Market this weekend!
we tried 7-8 different kinds of cookies, my favorite had to be the pistachio macaron with raspberry mascarpone filling, delicious!
thanks Mercedes for such a fun evening, to Collin for filming and to Shelley for hosting (her house is incredible.)
