Learn the French classics: macarons


Macarons are only ever made with three types of meringue; French, Swiss or Italian. In this 3 hour master class you will focus on how to make the perfect macaron with a selection of classic fillings.

Under the guidance of one of our Master Pâtissier, you will learn the techniques on how to make French meringue, prepare macaronage and colour application, as well as produce a variety of emulsified ganache. Additionally you will be taught a range of piped decorations to finish your beautiful macarons.

Macarons are yours to take home after the cooking course. No previous experience is required to participate. There is a maximum of 16 participants working at their own station.

Class structure

Your day will be a mixture of in-kitchen demonstrations performed by the chef who is running the session and hands-on practical cookery, where you are guided by the expert teaching chef. The exact format will vary from class to class depending on the style of cuisine and length of the course.
