Sweet, cute and delicious! Are you, like us, obsessed by these beauties found in exclusive boutiques such as Ladurée and Pierre Hermé, wrapped in silk paper and pretty bows?
If you want to know the secret of one of the icons of the city and learn how to make your very own (that will give Ladurée a run for its money), then this is the class for you!
Our two-hour French Macaron Class focuses on the creation from start to finish of these elegant and colorful pasteries. Students are divided into groups and work through the steps from dry ingredients, to creating the batter, to piping, and then finish with a box of beautiful macarons for you to take home with you!
For those that want to get in to a more technical version of our Macaron Class, then take a look at the three-hour French Macaron Technical Class. This class is for those that want to have an in-depth experience learning and practicing a variety or meringue, filling and shell techniques. During this class you will learn and practice two meringue techniques (French and Italian), create three different garnishes from start to finish, and learn to apply a different variation on your macaron cookie. From the meringue, to the macaron cookie, to the filling, you learn from start to finish six techniques – and of course have your box of macarons to enjoy thereafter!
In this class you will learn and apply the following techniques:
Macaron shell variation – using a different nut flour
Garnish: homemade traditional crème au beurre
Garnish: homemade traditional pastry cream
Garnish: homemade fruit compote
Is your Frech a little rusty? Do not worry: all of our classes are taught in English!
