    I took the baking course with my daughter. We were a nice group. Frederic gave us lots of helpful practical tips and emailed the recipes promptly. It's only natural that you get quite a bit of information at the beginning before you actually get into the making or baking. We had a lot of fun!!!

    I did the course with my 12 year old daughter. We learned a lot, it was fun and the macarons were delicious. Now we also understand the price of these works of art in the patisseries. I thought it was great that Frederic paid attention to details, including how to hold the wooden spoon, and explained to us exactly what to look out for. And all in a very friendly way.

    Very nice experience

    Very easy, simple experience. plus you get to take home very tasty macaroons! The chef was very nice, being in his home felt like I was spending the afternoon with a friend. Word of caution... if you really want the recipe take copious note... chef said he’d share the receipt & instructions but has not. Overall, while I enjoyed the experience I found it a bit overpriced (3 of us went so close to $400 for 20 macaroons was a bit much).
