              The Secrets of Macaroons


              If there is one French pastry that is the envy of the entire world, and which everybody dreams of being able to make, then it must be macaroons.

              The Secrets of Macaroons Workshop Presentation

              This legendary small round pastry, made from almond meringue, is perfect for every occasion. Macaroons are rounded pastries with a crisp shell and a soft interior. They are made from ground almonds, sugar and egg whites.

              To bring this luxury pastry within your reach, Le Cordon Bleu Paris invites you to take part in a three hour macaroon workshop in its brand new premises overlooking the Seine.
              This is the perfect setting in which to try making one of France’s most popular pastries.

              You will be immersed in the world of macaroons; by the end of the workshop, the technique for making them will no longer hold any secrets for you.

              To achieve this, the participants are guided by, and receive invaluable step-by-step advice from Le Cordon Bleu pastry Chefs.

              Flavours such as chocolate, salted butter caramel, vanilla and pistachio are programmed.

              The Secrets of Macaroons Workshop Chefs

              To ensure that you experience a true culinary discovery during your The Secrets of Macaroons Workshop, we have chosen highly experienced pastry Chefs.

              The story behind the macaroon recipe

              Macaroons have a long history and originally came from Venice.  The date of their arrival in France remains uncertain.  However, Parisian macaroons, or "gerbets" date back to the 20th century.
              In many French towns, specialty macaroons can be found, but the most well-known, along with the Parisian macaroon, is the Nancy macaroon.
              All macaroons, without exception, are made with the same ingredients, but each has a different texture: crisp, fondant, chewy, crackled, etc.  The Parisian macaroon is immediately identifiable thanks to its perfectly smooth and shiny shell, and tasty filling.
