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.

I couldn't reccomend doing a class here more. We had a wonderful couple of hours with Lauren and now we're not frightened of attempting macarons at home. The space is beautiful, and the class was excellently organised and prepared. The only negative is that we don't have time to do more of the classes this trip. Do yourself a favour and book into one of the classes. *Just a note about planning to get to the class location. It's not an exaggeration to say that traffic troubles can arise easily in Paris. We aimed to arrive 30 mins early, and still road closures for a marathon, buses that didn't arrive, no available taxis, and then an Uber driver wouldn't stop meant we were late. I would *strongly* suggest being in the neighbourhood much earlier than you need to be. It's a beautiful area to walk around and it's better to be early than have the stress of being late.

Great spot, lovely people, many jokes and yummy macaroons! It was a temperamental recipe made easy and you could chose the flavor of your glaze color and everything

We loved it!! Had a lot of flavors to pick from (but fruit and non fruit flavors). We picked raspberry and pear (unfortunately couldn’t taste the pear very much) but still enjoyed! Got to take home 15-20 macaroons each. Instructor was great and very patient. The time flew by, so happy we went!!

I had a wonderful morning making macarons with who must be the friendliest, most knowledgeable macaron chefs in the world. Wether you are a macaron lover or have never tried them, you will thoroughly enjoy the time you spend with these chefs baking and joking around. Book this if you love yourself. Trust me.

Great first time experience. A little pricy in my opinion but I also understand it’s Paris. Overall, had a blast meeting new people and the help we got was great! Nicholas was our teacher and once he opened up he was pretty funny and made the experience fun. If you have the financial funds to do this I would highly recommend, and if you love macaroons!

Great space to learn and share with strangers. Even though I have no interest in baking and only went to accompany my daughters I must say this was a very fun Parisian experience to remember.
