Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour

Macaroon Chefs

on September 22, 2014

After seeing so many pastry and cake shops we had to try our hands at the art of perfecting infamous macaroons.  Cook’n with Class is a small cooking school in Paris near Montmartre.  A taste of France, A love of Cooking…….It sounded just perfect.  We were in a small class of 6 people and across 3 hours with the guidance of our lovely French pastry chef, Constance, we made 3 different flavoured macaroons.  Whisking, stirring, brushing, piping and banging.  Yes, banging!  That surprised us all! Constance dropped the tray without warning creating a very loud, impacting bang!  It didn’t take long before we realised that was part of the art so off we all went on “banging” the air out of the macaroons!

Our favourite?………Salted butter caramel of course!

We will be sure to try our new skills out when we get back to Australia!
