I attended the Marvelous Macarons Class, and it was incredible! While French Macarons are very temperamental and require precise measurements, this class will show you how easy it can be to make this very impressive dessert. I was previously intimidated, but that trepidation has gone by the wayside.

Pastry Chef, Trish, was absolutely fantastic. She first gave a live demo, and was available throughout the process for questions and assistance. Trish is knowledgeable and passionate about baking. She provided a packet, inclusive of tips, the history of the French Macaron, as well as the recipe.
