Flour Bakery. The blue cornflower petals make this Earl Grey extra special. This macaron was inspired by one of the handmade chocolates that Flour offered one year for Valentine's Day. Nicole, the executive pastry chef, made a rich Earl Grey tea ganache dipped in dark chocolate and accented it with a single blue petal. Its been years but I still remember how beautiful it looked and how good it tasted. So thank you Nicole for the inspiration!
Most Earl Grey tea-infused ganache are made with either milk or dark chocolate. With my macarons, I decided to use white chocolate instead for a more delicate flavor (and just to test it out for fun since I haven't seen it done with white chocolate yet!). This was the first batch I made and I definitely want to add more tea next time. I think the Earl Grey flavor is more prominent when I've made it with milk chocolate. I don't know for sure yet until I test out another batch with more tea but I'm happy with this first trial :)
