French macarons are delicious and cute, but they are also notoriously finicky to make at home. The elegant meringue-based cookies, made popular by Ladurée in Paris, require method and patience to make, but they can be done in a home kitchen, and you don’t even have to be an expert baker!

I’ve been making macarons for almost 7 years, and I've been advising budding macaron makers through my blog FoodNouveau.com for over 5 years, so I have in-depth knowledge of what can go wrong when you attempt to make them at home for the first time. This course describes the essential equipment you need, the important steps to follow, the techniques to master, and the potential pitfalls to avoid

Skill level: This class is perfect for novice bakers who want to learn new skills, as well as for experienced bakers who are seeking to master a new, and impressive dessert.

--

Important Note: This class demonstrates the French method (as opposed to the Italian meringue method) for making macarons.

Marie is very knowledgeable and has a sweet demeanor. I feel ready to tackle macarons now! Thanks Marie!
Most sources that give recipes/describe the process of making macarons do not explain the part about getting the mixture right before piping. Yes practice does make perfect but without the essential knowledge that this teacher provides, you will flounder for far longer. Highly recommended
Excellent detail.
