I really enjoyed this class! I love baking and I had never made macarons before so I learned a lot and has loads of fun! I went with my father, who does not bake, and he enjoyed it as well! It was really well organised and the macarons, and the recipe, we left with were really

I will forever be grateful that I chose to partake in this macron baking class during my trip to Paris. I always wanted to take a baking class in Paris (I am an amateur baker myself) but I couldn't decide between macarons, other pastries, baguettes, etc. I am a diehard macaron

It was a very well organised and entertaining three hours. We really felt like we understood how to make Macaroons, even if we will struggle to repeat this by ourselves in the future. The instructor was clear but firm. Which is probably the only way you can hope to learn how to

I ADORED this class! Being an average "home baker" who has tried to make macarons a few times myself, I was looking for an immersive, fun and memorable experience - and this class delivered! Guillaume was a wonderful and patient teacher (with great English skills!) and guided us

This was a very well run class and our instructor was a lot of fun but unfortunately we didn’t realize we would be paired off in twos so one of the five of us was paired with a stranger who fortunately turned out to be delightful. But the other couple in our class was totally

Response from fredpouillot, Owner at Paris Cooking Class: Learn How to Make Macarons
Responded 28 Feb 2020
Bonjour marymV3755HI, thank you for your review highlighting the class was very well run, your instructor was a lot of fun and at the end of the experience you had made 'beautiful creations'. In relation to working in pairs, I would like to clarify two things: 1. this is for the purpose of ... making the meringues. Yes, we make one meringue per two people (anybody who has made meringue before would understand why). But each participant actually does get a full hands-on experience for each of the critical steps of making macarons ( weighng, sifting, macaronade, piping, garnish filling, etc...). 2. this is also captured in our FAQs and T&Cs section on our website (which we encourage prospective clients to read before signing-up), under the section 'are your classes hands-on?'. It has also been reviewed by many on this site. And this is what any schoo with a true hands-on experience does (but beware, some people only provide a demo experience unlike us). The awkward lapse of time between cooking completed and sitting down is called ...'filling the macarons' - which you were doing. So indeed it is very awkward that you found it awkward. And as far as sharing the class with a couple in love in Paris thank you for sharing the insight with other travelers. I think it is important people know that they run the risk of meeting people in love in the city of ... Love. Fred
