What you'll do

Learn how to make the iconic French "Macarons"! In the 16th century, it was the favorite pastry of the famous French Queen Catherine de Medici.
Since this day, many pastry chefs had and continue to have fun with this recipe, like Pierre Hermé or Cédric Grolet. Today, you can come and learn how to bake your 2020 version macarons !

During this interactive cooking lesson, you will be hands-on in the kitchen. Equipped with an apron and all the utensils you need, you will learn how to make your own macarons step by step, also picking the flavour of your choice !

You will be in control of your creations from start to finish, from the moment you lay eyes on the recipe for the first time to the moment you take your creation out of the oven.
I will be at your side to guide you and to teach you, with full explanations, the techniques you need to guarantee your baking will be a success!

At the end of your experience, we can taste what you have baked and chat about your trip to Paris and I’ll also be happy to give you my culinary advice, recommendations and opinions.

Maison Fleuret will do its best and make sure you have a great time during your experience.

We’re the ultimate French food lovers and passionate about our culture, so we created “Maison Fleuret” to share truly unique moments with like-minded devotees like yourselves.

Growing up, we learned how to cook traditional French dishes from our grandmothers, who passed down their appreciation for cakes and pastries. In the years since, we worked with chefs, took cooking masterclasses, and practiced a lot—all so we can give you a genuinely French culinary experience.

Fun class. Not sure I could replicate the experience at home but that wasn’t exactly the intent. Had a good time and unique experience in Paris and met some new friends along the way. Got to try several diff flavors of macarons as well!

The macaron workshop was really great. We had a lot of fun with the baking, met nice people and had a great teacher. She really explained all the steps and helped if you needed it. They gave us the recipe to make it at home, which was a really nice touch.

Macaroons are one of my favourite desserts these days. No gluten. But they seem very hard to make based on recipe alone. Descriptions of the needed consistency are quite subjective. But here! Learning to make macaroons with a french expert, amazing! Someone who knows the difference between meringues, can show what the ribbon consistency should look like , how to angle your hands right… Amazing teaching. Great atmosphere to make friends. Nice coffee. Good value for the price. And the macaroons taste amazing too!

A wonderful gift to please someone & to have that "French moment" during the stay in Paris! Matthieu is an excellent host! With his friendly and helpful nature, he was able to introduce us to pattiserie in a charming way, so that in the end we were really delighted with our own creation. The only thing I would change would be to add more fruit puree to the filling, as it ended up tasting primarily like white chocolate. But thanks to the recipe book you get at the end, we will try this again on our own! Next time in Paris it will be baguttes or croissants workshop. Thank you so much for this delicious French treat!

I had a great fun afternoon learning how to make macaroons and I’m so glad I decided to do it at last minute. Not only got so much from learning this new recipe but connected with incredible people that were coming from Netherlands and Paraguay. Nicolas the chef was great and explained everything with detailed and had the patience to show each of is how to use the tools and combine the mixes. Very happy with my experience, can’t wait to do the macaroons when I get back home!
