Learn How To Make French Macaroons in Paris

Under the watchful eye of your expert host – a French chef – spend an afternoon in a private apartment in the heart of Paris, discovering the culinary secrets to making delicate macarons (macaroons in French) from the recipe of the famous French pastry chef Pierre Hermé. The double-decker macaroon – made by sticking two macaroon shells together with ganache (filling)—was first done by Maison Ladurée, a legendary Paris pastry shop, in 1930. Today, colorful macaroons line all Parisian pastry shops. Chic and irresistibly delicious, they are the perfect French treat!

Your three-hour macaroon-making experience will take place in a private kitchen, with regular utensils and equipment so you can easily make your macaroons again at home. Two flavors will be chosen and created by your group out of the following options: chocolate, lemon, raspberry with Tonka bean, coconut with milk chocolate, or coffee.

At the end of your class, you will take away a box of macaroons and a copy of the recipe to share with your friends back home (or keep all to yourself!).

I bought this make French Macaroons as a surprise for my partner, and he had a great time. He had no idea what we were going to do and was very excited when he found out. The Chef was brilliant, he explained things well, put everything we were doing into context and from start to finish we made, created and baked four different flavored Macaroons.

After we were able to take all our baked goodies with us with our supplied carry boxes. We were very popular back at our hotel reception desk when we handed them out, and they loved them and said they where the best they had ever had. We told them we had just made them, and they couldn't believe we could make such perfect tasting macaroons, well we did and in no small part to the wonderful guidance of master Chef Frederic.

This makes a great surprise event which can be done with a loved one or the whole family. Well set up, very clean and excellent training with fluent English proffesional French Chef. Superb!
