What you'll do

The Holidays are here! Let's create some festive treats!

Macarons are incredibly popular, pricey and one of the most difficult pastries to master. When I started, it took months of trial and error with the recipe, preparation, baking and temperatures. Your experience jumps right into pastry insider tips and tricks, do's and don'ts and is limited to 10 participants. This ensures our classes highly instructional and completely hands-on.

You begin with learning what a great macaron is and then exactly how to create them from scratch. All the tips and tricks and common pitfalls are discussed. The idea and aim is that you should be able to create beautiful macarons at home!

We create macarons from the 4 basic ingredients and discuss how your macaronage (macaron batter) should look when it is ready to be piped.

We move on to how to perfectly pipe your macarons and how they should feel when properly cured and ready for the oven. Do not worry if you have never used a piping bag - I will teach you how!

In all, about 1.5 to 2 hours of solid, professional instruction.

You will leave with a full dozen macarons!
