Cupcakes and macarons in Washington, DC — The Sweet Lobby

The “No Macaron Left Behind” mission is alive and well, my friends! Yesterday I sampled three beautiful macarons from DC’s The Sweet Lobby, and I must say, they lived up to Zumbo standards. Read on for my tasting notes and more about my new favorite place in the nation’s capital. For years I’ve been a […]

Have You Eaten? Recipe testing for Billy Law’s first cookbook

I love food. Thanks to my foodie friend theheartoffood for these photos Before living in Australia, I satisfied my emerging interest by watching Top Chef, baking for holidays, browsing food magazines, and learning about gluten and dairy free eating. Living in and traveling around Australia for a year breathed life into what had been a […]

Making macarons for the first time

I tackled a self-imposed “No Macaron Left Behind” challenge when I lived in Australia. I sampled non-Zumbo macarons last summer in London and recently in my home town. I own two macaron cookbooks, Zumbo’s cookbook, and a macaron tea towel. This week, for the first time, I made macarons. It’s pretty embarrassing to admit that […]

Macaron Day (Zumboron Day) 2011

The “No Macaron Left Behind” mission was a 7-month, 65+ flavor, calorie-packed adventure! When I left Oz, I knew the mission would continue somehow and in small ways it has — I sampled macarons in London, now own several macaron cookbooks, and have been the recipient of macaron-themed gifts. But let’s be honest. The mission […]

Macaron Day Postponed

Today, half a world away from me, hundreds of curious, excited, hungry Aussies were supposed to queue up for Adriano Zumbo’s Macaron Day. I was going to read the stream of #Zumbo tweets and Macaron Day 2011 blog posts with envy, recalling my first Macaron Day experience last year. But Macaron Day 2011 has been […]

A Letter to Adriano Zumbo

Dear Adriano Zumbo, Happy Monday to you in Sydney! How are things going in the Inner West (and Manly)? Busy brainstorming ideas for Macaron Day 2011? I bet you and your team are doing just that. You don’t know me, though I wish you did. One year ago I stepped through the doors of your […]

Macaron vs Macaroon: What’s the Difference?

“I *still* haven’t tried a Macaron. I think I’m broken… >_> But can you settle an argument for me? Is there a difference between a macaron and a macaroon?” This is a direct quote from my good friend Chris of Aussie on the Road and was left as a comment on my latest macaron post. […]

No Macaron Left Behind: London

A few months ago I concluded the “No Macaron Left Behind” mission — not by choice but because my Work & Holiday Visa was days away from expiring. Sadly “macaron consumption” is not on Australia’s skill shortage list, and there is no sub-class of visa for those on wicked cool food missions. Australia’s a welcoming […]

No Macaron Left Behind: The End

This is the 6th post in the No Macaron Left Behind challenge series and 11th in the “my waist line is expanding while my bank account is decreasing” series. The “No Macaron Left Behind” challenge came to an end the moment I boarded a plane in Sydney three weeks ago. But in no way am […]

No Macaron Left Behind: 55-59

This is the 5th post in the No Macaron Left Behind challenge series and 10th in the “my waist line is expanding while my bank account is decreasing” series. My time in Australia is rapidly coming to an end. In fact, this is my last Thursday in the country. *tear* This also means that I’ve […]
