What you'll do

Learn how to make the iconic French "Macarons"! In the 16th century, it was the favorite pastry of the famous French Queen Catherine de Medici.
Since this day, many pastry chefs had and continue to have fun with this recipe, like Pierre Hermé or Cédric Grolet. Today, you can come and learn how to bake your 2020 version macarons !

During this interactive cooking lesson, you will be hands-on in the kitchen. Equipped with an apron and all the utensils you need, you will learn how to make your own macarons step by step, also picking the flavour of your choice !

You will be in control of your creations from start to finish, from the moment you lay eyes on the recipe for the first time to the moment you take your creation out of the oven.
I will be at your side to guide you and to teach you, with full explanations, the techniques you need to guarantee your baking will be a success!

At the end of your experience, we can taste what you have baked and chat about your trip to Paris and I’ll also be happy to give you my culinary advice, recommendations and opinions.

We’re the ultimate French food lovers and passionate about our culture, so we created “Maison Fleuret” to share truly unique moments with like-minded devotees like yourselves.

Growing up, we learned how to cook traditional French dishes from our grandmothers, who passed down their appreciation for cakes and pastries. In the years since, we worked with chefs, took cooking masterclasses, and practiced a lot—all so we can give you a genuinely French culinary experience.

Dear matthieu, it was a wonderful experience. We learned a lot, got great guidance, had a cool group and a lot of fun - but the best thing was that we got to take our own macarons and the instructions home with us. We would love to come back next time we are in Paris. Thank you very much! Keep up the good work! Great thing! Maja & Alba

Nicolas was a great teacher and very patient helping my 5 and 10 year old daughters. The kitchen is in a beautiful location and the macaron turned out so pretty. Now we are just trying to finish all of our macaron before we leave tomorrow! Highly recommend.

I took this class with my two daughters (10 and 11). We loved our experience with Nicholas. We all had so much fun. He was super patient with my girls. We made beautiful and delicious macaroons!

We had a wonderful time with the class. It was so fun learning the process of making a macaron, and you also get to take a recipe booklet home with you. The location and shop were cute and we loved getting to take home all the colorful macarons we each made during the class. Would definitely take another class with them to try and learn something else.

Such an amazing experience. We and our children had a blast making macarons from scratch, choosing flavors and colors - and learning from a great chef. We are from California, and the location was easy to find and very well appointed. Would recommend to anyone looking for a unique, hands on French experience.
