Back to basics: how to fill a piping bag
The single most important technique I’ve learnt since I started baking back in 2011 came from a chef at Lenotre in Cannes: in my first course about macarons, he explained us how to fill and use a piping bag.
The piping bag is widely used both to fill and decorate pastries. So yes, you will definitely need to use it for many of the recipes of this blog, but dont’worry: 1) it’s very easy, and 2) it automatically makes you look cool! 🙂
Nevertheless if you don’t know the simple professional technique to fill the bag with cream or frosting, chances are you are going to spill everything on your hands and all over the kitchen. 🙂
I use disposable plastic piping bags, which you can find in professional stores or online (mine come at 0.10€ per bag, pretty cheap), since they are the best choice for me: those made of fabric are hard to wash and not 100% hygienic in my opinion.
