Macarons, a famous French dessert since the beginning of the 20th century, may seem daunting to make; but don't fear! With our expert chef, you'll learn the steps from start to finish to make the perfect French-style macaron. In this 3-hour class that takes place in the chef's own Parisian apartment, you'll select 2-3 flavors with the other participants, roll up your sleeves, and get to work. You'll get to leave with a box of your homemade macarons (if there are any left!), and your chef will share with you their own personal recipe by email, so that you can make macarons once back home.
