Is it necessary to put eggs in recipe?
I have an allergy from eggs but i really wanna try recipe! what role do eggs play? is it really necessary to put them? any substitute?

Eggs bind the macaroons; google a substitute that suits you. But doesn't ice cream contain eggs, too?

Re: the Thermomix, the Thermochef does exactly the same things, costs less than half the price and is available from PROPER shops. Paying nearly $2,000, when you can get the same performance from an $800 machine, is absolute madness!

If they're coconut, they're Macaroons! Macaron are made from Almonds.
