French Macarons NEW!
with Kathryn Booth
The word macaron is derived from the Italian word, maccherone, mean-ing fine dough. It’s believed that the macaron cookie was born in Italy and brought over to France as early as 1533 by a noblewoman from Florence who married the future King of France, Henri II. A macaron has two delicate almond cookies that are sandwiched around a flavorful filling, like raspberry jam, or lemon curd – or even a chocolate buttercream. In this class, learn how to make french macarons, the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert!
