We had the BEST time in this class! And Florence was an amazing teacher. We enjoyed this class more than the 2 tours we had attended earlier in the week.

It is really too bad I can't give 10 stars for this tour. Frederick - owner and instructor of this school - is such a pro. Not only a very experience Parisian chef, he is a terrific teacher. He was tell us the French way of making these classic little delights and then explain WHY we should be following all these steps exactly. Macarons aren't hard but they are very specific. Weight, order of adding and correct kinds of ingredients are way more important than I had realized. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon and then we sat, had coffee/tea and enjoyed our handiwork. This class and Frederick were a highlight of my recent two week trip to Paris.

This class was such an enjoyable experience for my group of 4 friends! The location was lovely...and in a very nice part of town. Our Chef Frederic was very personable and thorough in explaining the steps to us. After our macarons were ready, they set a lovely table with tea and coffee for us to enjoy. I highly recommend this class!

Absolutely fantastic class. There were 8 of us in a class and we worked in teams of 2 to each create a filling and different shells which we then shared at the end. Met some lovely people and the instructor was brilliant. Highly recommended!

Le Foodist is the perfect venue for the macaron cooking class. And, Sarah is the perfect person to facilitate this experience! She took the mystery out of perfecting the technique to make macarons. The class is small and intimate and I met some wonderful people. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in doing something a little different.

My daughter, granddaughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed the macaron cooking class with Amanda at Le Foodist. Two other families were with our group totaling 8 people. Amanda is very well organized keeping us on track with the recipe, proper measurement, mixing, and cooking techniques. We enjoyed them with tea or coffee at the end of the class. There was a bounty of macarons so be prepared to take a couple of boxes with you when you leave.
