What you'll do

Learn how to make the iconic french "Macarons", in the 16th century, it was the famous pastry of the French queen Catherine de Medici. Now in the 21th century, many pastry chefs have fun with this recipe, like Pierre Hermé or Cédric Grolet. Now learn how to make yours macarons in 2019 ! During this interactive cooking lesson, you will be hands-on in the kitchen, and, equipped with an apron and all the utensils you need, you will learn how to make your own "Macarons" step by step, in different flavour ! You will be in control of your creations from start to finish, from the moment you lay eyes on the recipe for the first time to the moment you take your creation out of the oven. I will be at your side to guide you and to teach you, with full explanations, the techniques you need to guarantee your baking will be a success! At the end of your experience, we can taste what you have baked and chat about your trip to Paris and I’ll also be happy to give you my culinary advice, recommendations and opinions.

We’re the ultimate French food lovers and passionate about our culture, so we created “Maison Fleuret” to share truly unique moments with like-minded devotees like yourselves. Growing up, we learned how to cook traditional French dishes from our grandmothers, who passed down their appreciation for cakes and pastries. In the years since, we worked with chefs, took cooking masterclasses, and practiced a lot—all so we can give you a genuinely French culinary experience.
