Macaron Fun with La Cuisine Paris


I will be the first to admit I am a fan of the French Macaron. I have my favorite flavors at Pierre Herme and Laduree and of course they are also beautiful to look at. I was really looking forward to learning how to make macaron at La Cuisine Paris last week. The class did not disappoint as I was grinning from ear to ear the whole class. It was a lot of fun and Diane the instructor was filled with energy!

Sadly, I never got to test this out. I took my macaron to dinner and they were eaten quickly by friends! Both praline and chocolate were a hit! Merci La Cuisine Paris.

    I am a macaron-oholic, but sadly Philadelphia hasn’t entirely caught on to the trend. Or, rather, we have them, but I have a picky palate 😉 I make do with infrequent trips to the Ladurée in New York to satisfy cravings between Paris trips, but I’ve always wanted to learn how to make them! Yours turned out beautifully. So colorful! Next time I’m in Paris I’m making this a priority. xo
