What you'll do

Learn how to make the iconic French "Macarons"! In the 16th century, it was the favorite pastry of the famous French Queen Catherine de Medici.
Since this day, many pastry chefs had and continue to have fun with this recipe, like Pierre Hermé or Cédric Grolet. Today, you can come and learn how to bake your 2020 version macarons !

During this interactive cooking lesson, you will be hands-on in the kitchen. Equipped with an apron and all the utensils you need, you will learn how to make your own macarons step by step, also picking the flavour of your choice !

You will be in control of your creations from start to finish, from the moment you lay eyes on the recipe for the first time to the moment you take your creation out of the oven.
I will be at your side to guide you and to teach you, with full explanations, the techniques you need to guarantee your baking will be a success!

At the end of your experience, we can taste what you have baked and chat about your trip to Paris and I’ll also be happy to give you my culinary advice, recommendations and opinions.

We’re the ultimate French food lovers and passionate about our culture, so we created “Maison Fleuret” to share truly unique moments with like-minded devotees like yourselves.

Growing up, we learned how to cook traditional French dishes from our grandmothers, who passed down their appreciation for cakes and pastries. In the years since, we worked with chefs, took cooking masterclasses, and practiced a lot—all so we can give you a genuinely French culinary experience.

This experience was exceptional! I booked it as part of my daughter’s 5th birthday. Chef Lauranne was wonderful with her, very patient. I can’t recommend them enough!

We booked the course as a couple and ended up with 4 other people and our lovely host Lorraine whose expertise at her craft was outstanding. The experience was lovely and well guided by her. We ended up with a box of self-made macarons and a cute recipe book. Lorraine lead the course professionally, with humor and great patience. 6 people for one course were fine but I think more would be hard to supervise by the host. We‘d definitely do it again, thank you for the great time!

Great fun for my 15 year old—and fun for me as well! Our instructor was sweet and knowledgeable and made the experience feel very social. On top of that we came home with delicious macarons as well as inspiration to try them at home.
