MacaronsMacarons are light-as-a-feather French confections that can be assembled pulling from a mix-and-match palette of sweet fillings and bases.
On this 4 hour workshop we make 2-3 flavours of macarons: chocolate, pistachio and raspberry. You will also learn the technique behind making macarons and what can go wrong and why. Please bring some large storage containers. You will have approximately 30-36 filled macarons to take home with you plus around 50 spare shells.
We stop for a bowl of homemade soup and sourdough around 1pm, with cheese and fruit too.
Perhaps most importantly, as well as learning new skills, you will have had some fun learning in a relaxed and supportive environment. During the course the emphasis is on using personal taste, judgement and technique rather than slavishly following a recipe. This approach means that one recipe may become two or three recipes. However, a booklet containing the course recipes will be given to you at the end of the day / course.
Everyone has their own set of ingredients sharing only a 4 burner induction hob and standard size fan assisted oven with one other learner. We all work together at the same pace with each stage demonstrated before you do it yourself.
