Overview
Maracons are one of France's most popular confections. Discover how to make them on your own during a 3-hour class in the capital of French delicacies: Paris. Your expert instructor will lend a hand and provide detailed instructions throughout the class, walking you through the steps to creating a perfectly piped-macaron. Choose the colors you prefer for your shells, fill them with buttercream and learn about their role in French culture while you wait to taste the freshly baked results. Upgrade your booking for an advanced macarons class.
What to Expect
Head to your cookery school in central Paris the afternoon, then meet your macaron-making instructor over a refreshing drink before beginning your class.

During your hands-on class, listen to step-by-step guidance from your instructor and master the delicate art of macaron making. Learn how to make the meringue shells in the colors of your choosing and master the art of piping in the buttercream filling.

When your macarons are ready, sample your creations with a cup of tea of coffee and listen as your host talks of the macaron’s place in French culture and tradition. After three hours of baking and tasting, take your box of macarons and head outside to conclude your class.

Excellent instruction

I wish I had booked more cooking classes at Le Foodist. Amanda's macaron class was wonderful. She answered all of our questions, the macarons were delicious, and I've already started experimenting with macaron-baking at home. (In case you're worried you won't be able to replicate...More

This is small business, not a residence and not far from the University. We took a cab from our apartment in the 7th. It was +/- €15?

As far as I know, the age limit is 12, but that might depend on which class you’re interested in. You’d have to enquire.
