Behind the scene: macarons masterclass

Behind the scene: macarons masterclass

It’s been a couple of months now since I launched Gourmandises Académie. I thought it might be a good idea to give you a little bit of behind the scene of one of our classes.

It can be tricky to bake macarons. So many of you often think that making them is too complicated and  out of reach .

The Académie is about busting all these myths. If I can do it you can too. That’s exactly what one of our guests did.

Shirly is a real foodie. She particular enjoys the sweet stuff. She wanted to learn how to make macarons but couldn’t find the right course.

The Académie is not about who’s the best at baking or cooking, it’s about sharing a passion in a relaxed atmosphere and that’s what Shirly was looking for.

I don’t think she was completely convinced that she would be able to make her own macarons though.

I just showed her all the key steps from making a meringue, macaronnage , drying and cooking them to perfection.



She then learned how to make her own fillings.

And went back with a box of her own creations. Shirly was a delight to work with, she arrived at the Académie with very low expectations and went back with her heart content.

If you’d like to learn how to make your own macarons we are running another workshop on 19th January 2019, also a perfect Christmas present, book your place here.
