We are a family of five: Parents + 3 daughters (13, 11 and 8) from Israel. We all participated in Jennifer's Macaron class in English. It was one of the highlights of our Paris trip and we highly enjoyed it. In my view this class hosted by the very professional and charming Jennifer was better than Disney!!! We gained all required know-how and left with some wonderful photos as well. Actually a week after the class we succeeded to make Macarons in Israel using Jenifer's receipees. Thank you very much Jennifer. You are the best!!! The BD Family

Quick hit on the magic of making macarons with all the tips and tricks shared. Small group, great instructor and yummy samples of your work! Totally the best macrons I ever had. Location was perfect - private area in Galleries Lafayette. Couldn't ask for more of a Parisan experience! Totally recommend.

Claire, the trainer, was very passionate and friendly. She was very attentive and making sure everyone understood every step. The macarons presented for the course were a perfect choice. Chocolate shell with salted chocolate ganache and pistachio stuffed with pistachio butter. Very good! It's always a pleasure coming across that kind of people that brightens up your day.
