It was a good activity and nice to see how a real person lives in Paris. We came home with a nice amount of macaroons. The instruction was excellent. If you want to learn how to make macaroons this is a great class. But not as fun as some other travel cooking classes I have done. A little serious.

The macarones were delicious and looked pretty good too! Our chef provided very clear instructions and was patient with our questions. She gave us great local recommendations for food and for shops for any supplies we might need to make macarones at home. A very fun time!

Very easy, simple experience. plus you get to take home very tasty macaroons! The chef was very nice, being in his home felt like I was spending the afternoon with a friend. Word of caution... if you really want the recipe take copious note... chef said he’d share the receipt & instructions but has not. Overall, while I enjoyed the experience I found it a bit overpriced (3 of us went so close to $400 for 20 macaroons was a bit much).
