Love at first bite! Learn how to make French macarons using the French meringue method. This is a hands-on course led by Kate Smith, owner of Kate Smith Soirèe and Butterfield's Bakery & Market. We will also demonstrate 2 filling recipes that are easy to make at home and sure to please a crowd. We will discuss meringue techniques, piping techniques, bust myths and much more! You will work in groups of 2 to create, from start to finish, your own 15-count gift box of macarons to take home.
Hors d'€™oeuvres and drinks will be provided and there will be an intermission during the baking portion to allow attendees to get lunch/dinner at the market if they choose to. This class is for all ages, but for those participants 21 and older: one glass of champagne will be included with your ticket if you want. The instructor will check your ID before serving alcohol. Additional alcohol can be purchased at Topp'd Pizza and Salads or Butterfield's bakery and Market.
Come ready to learn and prepare to have a great time!
