And to those of you complaining that he doesn't tell what ingredients we need, yes he does, he just doesn't tell us from the start. We're told of what we need to as he's going through the steps. The standard in most macaron recipes regardless is powdered sugar, almond meal, salt, egg whites, and sugar. The cocoa is not standard. However, measurements can vary recipe to recipe and we're missing that information.
