Macaron lessons.

At last, time to sit down and write about the amazing people I have met over the last few weeks whilst passing on some of my hints and tips when making macarons.
I have been slowly building up this side of the business after getting so many requests from keen amateur bakers who just couldn’t crack the pesky macaron!
At nearly every food fair and market I was being asked for tips as to where people were going wrong and also asked if I would give lessons so I thought I would give it a go.
My new kitchen is ideal as its not in the house( with the pesky kids!) and has 2 ovens and lots of space for demonstrating, and I have found it a joy meeting like minded bakers.
Timing can be tricky as the students macarons have to dry before we bake them but by stopping for tea and a chat when they are piped and learning about the fillings at the same time it seems to work out perfectly.
Everyone goes home with some of their own macarons and also some of mine, and a little information sheet to use at home.
I have wondered about putting together a little pack containing a pre- measured single quantity of the ingredients as everyone who comes seems to want to rush home and try them again just to make sure it wasn’t a fluke the results they got with me!
I will ask for feedback on that one as it may put the cost up a little ( at the moment I charge £30 per person or £50 for 2) it seems better when a couple of friends come together as a one to one can be quite intense!!!!
These lovely ladies came a few weeks ago and achieved perfect macarons much to all our delight!
