How to Make Macarons at Elizabeth Street Cafe

February 12th, 2016

Anytime out-of-town friends come to Austin, one of the first places I take them is Elizabeth Street Cafe. I know I can’t go wrong with what is arguably the cutest café in town (I mean, have you seen the bright pink and turquoise exterior?!) and treating them to the fresh mango and cucumber salad or a warm bowl of bún accompanied by some delicious spring rolls. So when the ESC team invited us to learn how their pastry chef makes the café’s most legendary sweets, you can bet that everyone on our team rsvp’d “yes” faster than you can say “macaron.” We spent a sweet afternoon at the darling cafe bar to learn Sara’s expert tips on making the best macarons at home. Click through the slides to see how it’s done — it’s easier than you think!
