French macarons

Our resident cake designer and creator of all things sweet, Kate Clarkson, will demonstrate and teach the techniques required to make several different flavours of macaron.

Working 'hands-on' in our purpose-built kitchen, Kate will teach you how to create the perfect macaron. You'll then make several different flavours and colours of macaron to take home with you.
You'll be making up to four different fillings/flavours and those created at classes in the past, have included:

  • Rich, velvety vanilla
  • Raspberry & white chocolate
  • Tangy passionfruit & milk chocolate
  • Dark chocolate 'after dinner' mint
  • Milk chocolate orange
  • Smoky espresso & white chocolate

You'll learn how to make the macaron batter/mixture to the right consistency, how to pipe the shells/biscuits, how to cook them successfully as well as how to assemble and display them.

Macarons are a great idea for a present with a difference! Using the skills and techniques you learn, you’ll leave the workshop with the ability to successfully replicate the recipes at home.

All ingredients will be provided and you'll take away lots of new skills and printed recipe sheets. We’ll also provide you with some useful contacts for sourcing equipment and patisserie-making supplies. Refreshments and a light lunch will also be served.

We'll provide an apron for you to work in but if you'd prefer to have your very own, high-quality, embroidered YORK Cookery School apron, they are available to buy. Simply add one to your order and we can post it to you of just give it to you when you come to the class.
