Liquorice

Liquorice

FLAVOUR

The Danes love liquorice, they even have a festival every year in Copenhagen dedicated to its celebration. Being half Danish, I ate a lot of liquorice as a child and although I love salt lakrids (it’s the addition of ammonium chloride that creates that salty, mouth-puckering taste), I also prefer the taste of ordinary Danish liquorice to any other, there’s something in the balance of aniseed and liquorice root which gives it a smoother, more lingering flavour which I have reflected in this macaron.
