Amazingly there are still a couple spaces available in this saturday's macaron workshop at the farm (10/15). Come play with us and learn how to make perfect macarons just in time for the holidays? Are you in?

Also, to those who've taken this workshop (and hopefully loved it), I'd appreciate if you share this with your friends. xxP
Don't call them macaroons. These gorgeous, delicate, intricate Parisian macarons have very little in common with coconut macaroons. Parisian macarons are elegant meringue-based confections, sandwiched...

I'm never a camping person but I want this tent. It'll look great in my living room!

My first attempt at making French macarons at home yesterday. My daughter helped me pipe them and fill them with yummy salted caramel buttercream. A little more oval than circular, but not bad for a first try!

I tried an experiment with my convection oven. With the first batch, I stuck a wooden spoon in the oven door to prop it open. With the second batch, I let the oven door close completely. In both cases, the oven switch was set to "Convection" at 350, the temperature for convection ovens in the recipe. The second batch burned after baking for 13 minutes, but came off the parchment paper easily. The first batch turned out nearly perfect except the cookies stuck to the parchment more than I would have liked, leaving a little bit of the cookie on the paper.

And while I tend to eat ~2-3 cookies in one sitting, +Dora Hsu tells me that while in Provence she noticed women cutting them up and eating only a fraction of a macaron in one sitting.

"A toast to a great man: Here's to the late Michael Kean, a consummate restaurant man if ever there was one.

Kean, the general manager and partner at four-star Manresa, passed away recently at the age of 57. He worked in Bay Area restaurants for the past 30 years, bringing his hospitality, talent and kindness to places like Silks in San Francisco and Bridges in Danville. He joined Manresa in 2004.

"Michael was my partner and my confidant. I miss him very much," says Manresa chef-partner David Kinch.

"He added elegance and class and a sense of gracious hospitality that we were missing before. I continue to see every day his legacy at the restaurant."

He will be missed."

I can't believe it. Michael was the consummate host and such a warm and charming presence. I'm really saddened to hear the news.

The next chef in the annual "Cooking with Friends" series at Manresa is Dan Hunter, from Royal Mail in Dunkeld, Australia.

Why should you care since you've never heard of him? Well, because I bet you'd never heard of Rene or Noma when he was guest chef in the same series at Manresa way back in '08 either.
