Origin of the Gift Box Mixed Biscuits and Miss Sallie’s little history.
As a child Miss Sallie spent a lot of time making different biscuits, due to being a child in 70’s Australia we did not have a lot of ingredients that we do these days and some things like chocolate were so expensive that we had to use other methods to get chocolate flavours (e.g. cocoa powder and butter and sugar). But i also had parents who were of an older generation. So, i got to make some amazing biscuits.
Many of these biscuits my mum would love especially the ones with chocolate, but she also liked a good tasting biscuit, but wouldn’t be a fan of the amaretti biscuits, but I discovered these during a workplace challenge during the first lockdown of the Covid-19 pandemic in Melbourne; my challenge was to make a different biscuit every day for 30 days, I love these they are so tasty, a little crunchy and chewy all at the same time.
And my first experience with Macarons was when I went to France a the first time and I bought some very delicious macarons from Maison Mulot (I did not know this when I bought them) in the 6th Arrondisement of Paris, after that I found an amazing book at the Librairie Gourmande, and the sales person gave me directions back to the very same patisserie shop I had in fact bought my first macarons.
My first attempt at making macarons was not very good, but I practised and now being a professional chef can create them very well, but you have to respect the rules when making macarons.
