What to expect

Learn how to make French macarons with this 3-hour macaron baking class at a Parisian chef's home!

Trendy and irresistibly delicious, the macaron is more popular than ever. While they may seem impossible to make, this class is designed to show you how to prepare them from scratch, using simple ingredients and techniques. These almond-based cakes can be infused with a variety of flavors, and with the help of an expert chef in their Parisian apartment, you'll prepare 2 flavors during your class. The class only allows 8 people maximum to ensure a more intimate experience and to offer everyone a chance to participate. With the rest of your group and your chef, you'll choose two of the following flavors:

  • Chocolate and cocoa
  • Lemon
  • Raspberry with tonka bean
  • Coconut with milk chocolate
  • Coffee

At the end of the class, your chef will provide you with a box to take your macarons with you (if you haven't already eaten all of them, that is!). You'll also receive a copy of the recipe so that you can make tasty macarons back home.
