Learn new skills at a gourmet macaron cooking class
French cuisine is one of the most popular cuisines in the world. Many methods of cooking used across kitchens today originated in France. Therefore, those interested in picking up the French cooking techniques can take up the Gourmet Macaron Cooking Class.
Do you love to whip up new and impressive dishes in the kitchen? People with a flair for cooking can join professional courses during their Paris vacations. One of the trickiest French desserts to master is the dreaded Macaron. When created perfectly, macarons can taste heavenly. However, you need to be precise and exact with all measurements and ingredients to make macarons successfully.
Although originating in Venice, Queen Catherine de’ Medici introduced the dessert in France during the early 16th Century. Till the early 1900s, macarons were served as a single piece. However, sometime in the 1930s, chefs began serving two macarons together with a variety of liqueurs and jams in between. Today, the dish has evolved even further to include ganache, buttercream or jam as a filling. The macaron tower is a special way of presenting the dessert, where many macarons are arranged on a stand to form a tower-like structure.
Unlike many other deserts, mastering the macaron requires guidance from a professional. Opting for a Gourmet Macaron Cooking Class allows you to learn from a chef with years of experience.
