I just realised that it has been over a month since Fabricio and I did our first macaron class at the Faircake kitchen in Greenwich and I completely forgot to blog about it. I hadn’t even edited any of the photos! Well, anyway, here are a few snapshots and my thoughts on the class. As you can see, the kitchen is absolutely beautiful and so well-equipped. This being the first time teaching here, it was a bit of a rush to find where everything was stored and to be set up on time, but thankfully luck was on our side, as per usual at the weekend the tube lines were delayed and so we had a few extra minutes to prepare. We had 11 lovely students join us for the class and they learned how to make lemon, salted caramel and pistachio macarons. Here’s the first lot of macarons coming out of the oven. I breathed a sigh of relief at this stage because, well, macarons are finicky little things which often decide to fail at the most inopportune times!And of course everyone went away with a box of macarons and the recipes. We have another macaron class coming up soon at Faircake and there are still some places left.
Class: Macarons with a Hint of Christmas
Date & Time: Friday 7th December 6-8pm
Venue: 16 Highbridge Wharf, Greenwich, London, SE10 9PS
We will be teaching 3 different Christmas inspired flavours as well as showing you some ideas for decorating your macaron shells (see below). If you are interested do book a place as this class only comes round once a year and there’s not much time left to snap up the last few places! Click here to book!
