Macarons, as you know, are my passion but I must admit to being equally motivated by gardening. I love nothing better than pottering in the garden, planting, weeding, hoeing, clipping, sowing, reaping, deadheading, watering and, most importantly, sitting and enjoying the fruits of my labour! I have a very small kitchen garden which is a jumble of soft fruits, herbs and easy-to-grow veg. In the cool of these beautiful, summers evenings, I have been harvesting luscious raspberries, juicy blackcurrants and tiny, sweet strawberries. These have been the inspiration for this month’s macaron flavour – Summer Fruits and Lime – a fabulously fruity combination in a dark chocolate ganache presented in a beautiful, berry-coloured macaron. I think a glass of rose would be the perfect accompaniment!
