We really enjoyed the class - I have very limited cooking experience and no real baking experience and yet with Chef Stacey's direction I was able to make a reasonably good looking decorated cake!

This was a wonderful way to spend a special birthday with friends and create our own special treats! Chef Stacy was an exceptional host/instructor. Her location was clean, welcoming, and she was very well prepared. The thought of making macarons was intimidating but Chef Stacy was great at explaining each step of the process, why to use certain techniques and how it affected quality. We also loved that she answered all related (and a bunch of semi-related) questions. Our dessert-making will definitely be improved after this baking experience!

My fiancé and I took the Mastering Macarons class with Stacey, and it was so much fun. She walked us through everything, explaining what we were doing and why at each step. She made tackling macarons very easy and not as intimidating as macarons are known to be. It is well worth the time to take a class with Stacey, she’s great!

Such a great time making macrons with Chef Stacey, and wow they are some of the best macrons I've ever had!
05 Dec 2021
Chef Stacey was so great! She was fun and informative. It's a great space and a nice atmosphere. I feel like I should be able to recreate the macarons we made in class today on my own now. And I promise to never make an American buttercream again! I intend to take other classes from Chef Stacey because I really enjoyed both her and this process.

Chef Stacy was a delightful hostess. She was very organized; all ingredients were pre-measured and ready to use. Stacey explained every ingredient, why it was used and gave hands on experiences which helped this older woman to understand and remember what to do when we tried it at home. (We did go home and made some great cream puffs on own)
I enjoyed every minute with Stacey; time flew by. My sister and I plan to take more classes from her.
23 Feb 2020
My daughter and I took the macaron class with Chef Stacey and had a blast! She made an “intimidating” dessert very easy. We are both excited to take the techniques Chef Stacey taught us to make macrons at home. Thanks!

Stacy was an excellent teacher. She was very thorough and went over all the little details that would help my guest and me make the best macarons. One of the reasons I wanted to take the class was to learn all those little tricks to make the best macarons ever. She had everything measured out and ready to start as soon as we got there.
Stacy was fun, which made the class very enjoyable. She even provided little snacks and water for us. We just had the best time and our macarons turned out so good. I would definitely take another class from Stacy.

Chef Stacy is very knowledgeable and a great instructor! In this class, we were paired up and were able to actually make the pastry dough ourselves and participate in making the fillings. I love hands-on learning, and this class delivered! The class is held in Chef Stacy's apartment, which was a lovely space for 6 student and Chef Stacy to bake! Thank you so much for such a fun evening and for teaching us all about pâte à choux!
