Yet I am happy in my comfort zone, and I am happy that the little world I created here less than two years ago has extended its life into monthly food magazine column and now cookbooks that can reach out wider audience. Thanks to this humble blog, I also came to know so many wonderful people out there, kind-hearted fellow bloggers and like minded people who are truly supportive of The Cooking Doctor, dropping by every time a new post is up or whenever good or bad news are shared.
Some early comments that kept me going…

Matcha Chocolate Macarons
90 g aged egg white
200g minus 1 tbsp icing sugar
1 tbsp matcha powder
115 g fine almond powder
40 g fine granulated sugar
100g dark chocolate with 55% cacao
1. Sift the almond powder, icing sugar and matcha powder ( green tea powder) into a large mixing bowl. Ideally sift twice.
2. Beat the egg white until soft peaks are formed and add the granulated sugar.
3. Once stiff peaks are formed, slowly add into the almond mix.
4. Form macaronage and pipe into macarons. Bake for 140 C for 20 minutes.
5. Melt the chocolate using double boiling technique. Once cooled spread between mac shells.
Note: What I post here is a very simplified method, as you can learn all about macarons in my previous posts here and All About Macaron is dedicated just for the techniques and tips.
