The macaron is a sweet meringue-based confectionery made with egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food colouring. The macaron is commonly filled with ganache, buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies.

Characterised by its smooth, squared top, ruffled circumference and flat base, it is mildly moist and easily melts in the mouth.

In this two and a half hour course, learn the secrets to making the perfect macaron and a delicious ganache filling in this fun hands on course.

Fun class with delicious macarons to take home as well. I am not sure that I can make these successfully at home since a lot was pre-prepared for us but it was good way to spend an afternoon.

The class was a great experience. We made delicious macarons and took home the ones we didn't eat.

I learnt how to make perfect macaroons. How to avoid mistakes that compromise their quality. What determines a perfect macaron. All the while being entertained by Arnon and his life and experience stories. Asking him questions and tips. It was a fantastic couple of hours!!
