Traditional French macarons: A history and cooking class with Chef Amber.

In this exciting hands-on class, you'll learn how to make a variety of traditional French macarons under Chef Amber's guidance. Upon completion, you'll be an expert in macaron history and fancy yourself a macaron artist.

Chef Amber will walk you through the history of the macaron, share techniques for a successful bake and teach all sorts of unique flavor variations of the classic French cookie. After tackling marshmallow and smokey chocolate ganache, you'll move on to cookie butter, a crowd favorite, and finish with Chef Amber's personal favorite: Red velvet!

Chef Amber was a delight, just like the food she taught us to make! Despite not having much experience baking, our macarons came out perfect and the experience was fun and easy to follow! We had an amazing time in her class and can’t wait to come back for more. Highly recommend!

This experience with Chef Amber went above and beyond! The entire facility, including the professional kitchen area, was aesthetically pleasing. The lobby was decorated with flower ceilings from above and a flower wall. Chef Amber created a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere in her kitchen with good lighting, complimentary snack/drink table, and played music of our choice! Her kitchen had the appropriate appliances, utensils, and kitchen tools to bake the macaroons. It was nothing but fun while we baked with Chef Amber. The baking instructions were written down as we followed her step by step instructions, no stress! She baked alongside throughout the activity. This was a great activity to do for our anniversary celebration. We highly recommend taking her class!
