Macaroon Class - 11 Jan

Whilst cupcakes are still popular classes at our school, macaroon is gaining popularity amongst us who are looking for things different and new. Macaroon derives its name from the French word "macaron" which means "fine dough". According to "Larousse Gastronomique", the ultimate food encyclopedia, the macaroon originated in Venice, Italy during the Italian Renaissance. However, it is better known as a French dessert often served with coffee. Macaroons are such lovely little colourful cookies.

Rita, her children and friends arrived early on Tuesday morning to learn the basic techniques of making and baking macaroons. Needless to say, they had an absolutely fun time. Being amateurs, their macaroons were piped in circles of different sizes but nevertheless, the taste was excellent! The students liked the Green Tea flavour very much. They also learnt to make Lemon and Chocolate filings. Simply delicious!

Our next Macaroon class is on 11 and 27 Feb. To find out more, log on to
