Learn to make macaroons
Just look at those feet! Perfect Macarons every time you bake them. We will teach you how.

Perfect Macarons every time.

Are you confused? Do you hear people referring to French Macarons, those lovely colorful confections made from nut flours (usually almond, sometimes hazelnut), as Macaroons? Allow us to help clarify.

French Macarons (pictured here) originated in France. Macaroons, from Great Britain, are a cookie made with coconut. Both are delicious but very different.

We teach both French Macaron and British Macaroon baking. Try a class … you’ll learn a lot and have fun at the same time.
