Fantastic Parisian Experience
, Feb 2020
Absolutely fantastic class. There were 8 of us in a class and we worked in teams of 2 to each create a filling and different shells which we then shared at the end. Met some lovely people and the instructor was brilliant. Highly recommended!
Best Parisienne experience!

Le Foodist is the perfect venue for the macaron cooking class. And, Sarah is the perfect person to facilitate this experience! She took the mystery out of perfecting the technique to make macarons. The class is small and intimate and I met some wonderful people. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in doing something a little different.
Sarah is the best!

Sarah is the greatest teacher! Definitely one of the highlights on the trip! If you’re ever in Paris, take a class with her! When we come back we’re going to take another!
So much fun!!!!

My daughter, granddaughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed the macaron cooking class with Amanda at Le Foodist. Two other families were with our group totaling 8 people. Amanda is very well organized keeping us on track with the recipe, proper measurement, mixing, and cooking techniques. We enjoyed them with tea or coffee at the end of the class. There was a bounty of macarons so be prepared to take a couple of boxes with you when you leave.
Favorite Paris experience so far!

If I could rate this experience 10 stars, I would. What a fantastic way to spend 3 hours in Paris. Le Foodist have a professional set up and a terrific team. Chef Florence ensured we all stayed on track which ensured the eight of us made perfect macarons and they were delicious. If it had not been on our last day in Paris we would have returned for more fun and learnings. I recommend this to everyone. If I find myself in Paris again, this will be my first stop.

This was the highlight of Paris for us. It was WONDERFUL! A must do for someone who has seen some of the sights of this beautiful city. My sister and I were put into a class with 4 others and the 6 of us made so many macarons it was unreal. After the cooking and baking you go upstairs with your class and the table is set with tea and coffee and the delicious macarons we just made. Then you receive boxes to take the rest with you. We each received at least 30 to 40 macarons. This was such a nice afternoon in Paris.
