Beer reduction and salted caramel macarons with toasted peanuts or sunflower seeds
My, that was tough! This month’s MacTweets challenge was called “Take me out to the ball game” and involved an inspiration from all the snacks sold at the stadium or prepared at home before the game (baseball, football, rugby or cricket) – hot-dogs, fizzy drinks, popcorn, fries… you get the picture! The thing is, I’ve never been to a game in my life. Never, truly. I don’t even watch sports on the TV… well, apart from figure skating.
So, what I would like to dig my fingers into if someday I’ll have to watch twenty guys chasing one ball on the green grass (yeah, being a European I understand football better than baseball)? The answer was fast to come. Beer! Peanuts! Once I had it all thought through, I remembered the mini stalls full of roasted sunflower seeds in my hometown of Sofia close to the stadiums when a game was played. So, I added a few – the Bulgarian touch to the French patisseries.
