Full description
Discover the secret to making perfect macarons at a hands-on small group class in the heart of Paris. Typically groups are between 3 to 7 people, making for an intimate experience and full attention from your host. They will demonstrate and give detailed instructions on how to make macarons using the harder-to-master, but more reliable, Italian meringue technique. Learn to pipe, incorporate a color to your shells, and make a ganache or curd filling. Once done, sit down to a shared teatime of tea, coffee, fruit juices, and some of your creations. This is the time when your host will share the story of the macaron, and a couple of other interesting stories about French culture - often tongue in cheek. Before you depart, you will be loaded with a box of your very own creations, which you can share with your friends and family - or eat yourself over the next few days!

  • 2-hour macarons class with hands-on instruction
  • All cooking equipment and apron

    We had a wonderful afternoon learning to make macarons! Fanny was an amazing teacher. She was warm, patient, funny, and very knowledgable. She taught us many tips and tricks. My 12 year old daughter loved every minute of it and did I. We enjoyed meeting the others in the group and having a chance at the end to relax with a coffee and enjoy our creations. We also had plenty leftover to take a large box home to enjoy later. This experience is well worth the money and was one of our favorite parts of the trip.

    The class was fantastic. My two boys (14 and 15) really enjoyed themselves. My only issue was I paid for 3 people, but I was the assistant. I didn't have a spot to make my own macaroons. The other family was a party of 4 and only the two children actually made the macaroons, while their parents played the assistants. It was fine, because I did get a lot of pictures. I just feel their should be two kinds of cost. 1.. People who make the macaroons. 2. People who are observing or assisting.

    My daughter and husband loved this class! She loves home ec but because she has celiac she isn’t always able to participate, so this was a win win because it was 100% gluten free and safe for her plus she got to eat everything that she made! Instructor was kind and gave great instruction. Best was that it was a small intimate group.
