Prep Work Details

NOTES FROM THE CHEF: This class may extend past 90 minutes to ensure every guest is successful at making these lovely macarons. If you do not have a scale that weighs in grams, you can use the Imperial measurement (US metrics) conversions below: Confectioner’s Sugar - 1 cup Almond Flour - 1 cup + 5 TB Freshly Cracked Egg Whites - 1/3 cup Granulated Sugar - 1/2 cup Separate egg whites from yolks. Be careful there are no "goldfish" (yolks) whatsoever and refrigerate your whites. Remove from the refrigerator 60 minutes prior to class. Have a fan with a “low” setting ready nearby (this will be used to help dry out the cookies prior to baking). Oven fans (in hood system) are not kind to drying macarons. Have your piping bags and sheet trays ready. If using parchment paper, have it cut or lined up inside the tray, not hanging over the sides of the tray.

Lisa was great. She talked to all the homecooks several times and checked on their macarons. I especially liked learning the sciencey part of how to get the "skin" on the cookie and why it was important.

The Parisian Macaron class I took with Chef Lisa was great! She was super helpful and answered any questions and helped troubleshoot any issues. She explained each step in the process thoroughly and made sure everyone in the class was successful. It was a great way to spend my Friday evening and I will definitely be on the lookout for more classes from her! Highly recommend!
