Petit four is literally ‘small oven’ in French and not ‘small 4’ as I thought (or it’s just me?). It was loads of fun making them since I always fancy small and dainty things. Was quite chaotic in the kitchen though as we had to make 4 types of petit fours in each session. Plus the chiller was not that chill and my sables was not hard enough when I cut them (yes, blame everything but the monkey who did them – as Chef C. would say).
And don’t call them cookies (not in France at least!).
Anyway, here are my petit friends:
I also made pistachio chocolate fudge (very rich and chocolatey) and macaroons with raspberry jam:
I’m not a big fan of macarons. In fact, I don’t remember eating them before. Will pop down to Laduree (they invented the double macaron sandwich in the 1800s which we see today) and see if they taste good!
