Welcome to the Kingdom of Morocco, country of Imazighens! The history of Moroccan cuisine, which is of Imazighens (Swassa, Ryafa and Zayanes), Jews, Andaloussi and Sahrawi origins, stretches back for several centuries and was able to adapt itself to changes and different modern ingredients from period to period. Moroccan cuisine is rated among one of the most cleverly balanced cuisines, with strong focus on rich flavours, aromas, texture, presentation, and perfect choice of spices and fresh ingredients, thus leading Moroccans to pride themselves on eating tasty, delicious and traditional food on a daily basis. Several Moroccan dishes have become increasingly popular now in other parts of the world (North of America, Australia and Western Europe) and it is no surprise that some neighbouring African countries have adopted the Moroccan Style Flavour.

French Heart-Shaped and Dark Macarons/Macarons Français Coeurs et Noirs For Mactweets Challenge!

I was planning to make these macarons for Mac Attack 3 last week, but I was hesitant for one reason: THE WEATHER.  Last week the weather was horrible; it was pouring and snowing outside, then I decided to start making my first batch of heart-shaped macarons.  I chose pink powder colour.  I never tried this shape before, it was a big challenge for me!  However, I was disappointed with the filling, because the butter cream I bought, as you may see in the picture, breaks.  It must be made with margarine instead of real butter.  This will teach me to make my own butter cream next time.
Then, I made my second batch of chocolate heart-shaped macarons, and they turned out so perfect and nice!  All of them got eaten with delight and I couldn't take a picture of sandwitched chocolat heart-shaped macarons.  The other thing that I wanted to try is THE BLACK MACARONS!  I don't have a black powder colour and I couldn't find it anywhere.  Then I tried a combination of 3 different colours: Purple, Green and Red.  To my surprise it worked.

Part of the Mactweets challenge that Deeba and Jamie are hosting, I made all these macarons. The January Mactweets challenge was "DO SOMETHING OR ADD SOMETHING YOU’VE NEVER DONE BEFORE BUT HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO TRY".

For recipe, I always use my usual recipe adapted from La cuisine de Mercotte, the Queen of French Macarons!.
