What you'll learn in this macaron class:

Light and airy, French macarons are a delicate, fancy dessert to share with family and friends. Bonus—they are gluten-free! 

The basic almond meringue cookies, when sandwiched together with a variety of fillings, allow you to adapt this sweet treat to your tastes. During class, you will prepare a classic macaron cookie recipe and chocolate ganache filling, and watch a demonstration of making European-style buttercream for an alternative filling. You will need piping bags, and a 3/8” (9mm) round tip, a hand-held or stand mixer, parchment paper and three baking trays. You will also need to purchase ingredients to make the macarons and complete some easy, pre-class prep. 

A full ingredient list, pre-class preparation instructions, and recipes will be sent in advance of the class.
