Chocolate Macarons with Chocolate Ganache a Sweet French Treat
Chocolate Macarons are no longer confined to the fancy patisseries in Paris, you can make them at home. If you search for a macaron recipe, Google will turn up over 600,000 possibilities. Rather than dive deep into the internet pages we turned to Gilles Conchy who is also known as the Provence Gourmet. A native of Provence, who returned to the South of France, in recent years, after a stay in Southern California. Conchy runs small group cooking classes, market tours and private function. His focus is fresh ingredients and traditional recipes, but certainly won’t shy away from a sweet treat like chocolate macarons with a chocolate ganache filling.
Here is the link to Provence Gourmet cooking classes, you won’t be disappointed.

This a family recipe from Gilles Conchy's cousin FLEUR. There are a few steps to make French-style chocolate macarons with chocolate ganache filling, but it is a fun hands-on recipe and one that your family (and guests) will thank you for making the effort.
Once prepared, wrap your Chocolate Macarons with a plastic film and leave them in a fridge for 48H ! I was never able to wait that long.
If you don't like chocolate, feel free to experiment with other ganache flavours (strawberry, vanilla, caramel and so on.)
