About our Macaron Masterclasses in Cambridge

Often described as the jewel of French patisserie, macarons were first introduced in France by Catherine de Medici, who used to come to France with the family to escape from the hot summers in Florence. The French (or the Italian) macaron should not to be confused with the coconut macaroon. The coconut macaroon is a pastry that came out of Paris, as a twist on the Italian amaretti. A macaron is lovely biscuit, a delight to the palate and very pretty. It’s basically a sandwich of meringue shells and filling. Making a macaron is a real art. There are many around, but quite often they are chewy instead of light and crisp. The meringue shells are made of almond meal, sugar and egg whites, and the filling can be anything from sweet to savoury.

Our Macaron Masterclass is a perfect team building event. The ultimate treat for the real Macaron fan – the Macaron Masterclass starts with an introduction by the Patissier followed by the opportunity to try your hand at making Macarons.
This Macaron challenge, which certainly challenges your team! We’ll kick off with a demonstration of how to make macarons, whilst they sip Prosecco and sample macarons.

Next, on the programme is filling the macarons and building a tower of macarons with their team. I suggest to split up your party into 3 groups. This might sound very easy, but creating the tower within a limited time and not breaking the delicate macarons often proves to be very difficult.
