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!

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.

We went with our family and we all enjoyed it. It was well organized and both our children were able to easily follow along and participate. The macaroons were delicious.

Wat een leuke manier om macarons te leren maken. In een prachtige buurt in een prachtig gebouw met een super lieve chef Lauren. De volgende keer gaan we voor de croissants

Matthieu hosted the macaroon making experience, and he was fab! We made macaroons in a group of 4, and there was a variety of colours/ flavours to choose from. I am also incredibly grateful that this experience was tailored to suit my dietary requirements (I am lactose-intolerant). I didn't feel like an inconvenience, and the macaroons both looked and tasted great!

Though I am an experienced baker and cake decorator, I was able to pick up some very valuable tips and skills. The macaroons turned out absolutely perfect, and most of all, delicious! The macaroons that we took home it’s more valuable than the price of admission.
