Hi, I'm Caroline. They say I'm one of Great Britain's most respected speakers on the traditions of English tea - at least that's one of my biggest passions. I first got excited about tea when I was a very young girl, growing up in Chelsea, my mother would dress me up in a Harris tweed coat, white socks and little red shoes and take me out to tea. This - along with Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management - would be my first introduction to the magical world of English tea.

The experience

I want you to join me on this macaron making experience, in which we'll perfect the art of making the Parisian style macaron. These beautiful delicacies are a familiar sight in the windows of fashionable French patisseries, and yet few know how difficult they are to make. I have made thousands of these delicate fancies and yet each time I make them I have to concentrate, check the weather and get into my macaron making thought process.

I'll guide you through the recipe and method to consistently achieving that classic smooth-topped shell and characteristic 'foot' without any cracking. With a disciplined method and a few handy tips, you can make sure your macarons turn out the same size every time in your own kitchen (as opposed to making them in a commercial setting).

You'll learn how to make two or three different flavoured macaron shells, giving your selection a wonderful dash of colour. Then you can be as adventurous as you like with the fillings, making anything from tangy orange buttercream, smooth Sicilian lemon, or dark chocolate ganache. I'll show you some classic combinations and leave the rest to your imagination!

What are you waiting for?

NB. Please note that a minimum of TWO people are required to run this class (ie the minimum fee is £190)

Really enjoyed our morning with Caroline, very helpful, friendly and full of tips and advice. Bit tricky finding the venue and it is very small so would not be any good for large groups, but thoroughly enjoyed the day. Many thanks
