Is this a private activity?

It sure is. Your family members will be the only ones participating in this private macaron class, along with your private chef.

Do the parents participate?

Of course! Everyone will get their hands deliciously dirty.

How much food will we make?

The quantity of macarons prepared is enough for the whole family to enjoy even after the baking class.

Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?

It takes a bit of dexterity to get these macarons right, so we recommend not to book this activity for children below the age of 10. Instead, our Baking Bread and Croissants hands-on workshop would be the perfect fit as it is much easier, and just as nice (and delicious).

Can you make gluten free macarons?

As long as you give us the information before hand, we will adapt the ingredients to match your food restrictions. However, they might not taste like the real “traditional macarons” anymore.

Do we need to bring special material or ingredients?

No. All you need to bring is a big smile and the will to prepare mouth-watering macarons. We will take care of the rest.

Do we get the recipes of what we prepared?

Of course, we will send you the recipes by email once the macaron class is over (this might take a few days, especially if we need to translate the recipes)

Will my teenage kids like the activity?

Sure they will. As a matter of fact, the older they are, the better, as it takes quite a lot of accuracy to get these macarons to taste and look the way they are supposed to.
