Perfect for my daughter and me
, Jun. 2022
After reading several reviews we knew what to expected. We watched and learned for the first part (the making of the shell), we took part in piping practice and then actually mixed together the ingredients for our ganache. It was the perfect experience and met our needs. Our presenter was very kind and knowledgeable.

Delicious macaroons! Very fun gal teaching, very organized! Nice space. It would have been nice to have some signage up at the entrance to the Galleries. No one new about the classes, difficult to find the class.
Great experience!
, Jun. 2022
The presenter’s demonstration was very good and the class was fun and informative. I signed up for an English speaking class and there were parts in French which was disappointing.
Excellent small-group french macaron class!

What a wonderful experience at Galeries Lafayette! My daughter and I wanted to do something nice together, and while there are longer macaron baking experiences than this one, I am a fairly experienced baker and didn't want to spend extra time whipping egg whites. This was perfect. Marie, our chef, was lovely, and the group is limited to 16 people, so we were all able to chat. Plus, you take home eight macarons (four chocolate and four pistachio), plus the recipe. Really fun class!
Never again

It is NO backing macarons. Just the reciepe and make the Cream. Macarons were ready. Just 1.5 hour instead of 2 Too expensive

Dear Annette, thank you for your return. Normally, the cooking time for macarons is 3h, that's why the format is different. Our masterclass is to discover the reciepe and main steps of realization. During the class, you have the opportunity to make yourself every steps. We wish you the best and rest at your entire disposal, Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann
Not what we thought it was
, Apr. 2022
The instructor was nice and pleasant. The macaron making itself was a lot of watching her do everything, listening to instructions to…not get to do it. They make the shells, and put the ingredients for the ganache in a bowl for you already measured. Basically we stirred the ganache. That was it. We were waiting for our turn to actually bake and it never came. Very disappointing, we spent the rest of the day cursing ourselves for not picking a different class.
icon Response from Host , Apr. 2022
Dear customer, we thank you for your review and sincerely sorry for your experience. We understand your feedback and we will inform our pastry chef for the macaronnage moment. This course in 1h30 unfortunately does not allow to study in small details the realization of macaroons which are usually realized in 4h. Contact us by the adress : if you're coming soon and we check together our others pastries class. Wish you a great day, Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann

Our chef instructor was very nice and made the class fun. One group of two arrived 30 minutes late and I feel they should not have been allowed in. Our instructor did a great job catching them up…
Delicious Macarons
, Mar. 2022
The class was fun and we were able to be successful and take home some lovely macarons. The set up was very comfortable and we were provided with everything we needed to make the macarons. The instructor was personable and had a great teaching style
A big YES to this class!

What fun! This class was a birthday gift for my daughter and me. I thought the presentation was very well organized and the instructor was competent, patient and charming as well! We are returning home feeling confident that we will make macarons.

Thank you for a great experience. My wife and I had a great time!! The teacher spoke English and it was helpful bc our French is terrible
Great Experience - Bravo!
, Jul. 2021
Overall loved the experience of making Macarons at the Galeries Lafayette! The class leader/instructor was very nice and personable, I only have nice things to say about her. We watched the instructor make the batter and we got to make the filling and apply it. Would loved to have had mixing equipment at every desk to make the batter ourselves, but maybe this is not practical from an electrical standpoint. The inside was beautifully decorated. There was one person responsible for clean up and keeping us all tidy, she did a great job.
Makes you feel you’re in a movie!

This was exactly what I envisioned during my first trip to Paris! The space with absolutely beautiful, the instructor (Caroline) was so sweet, personable and friendly. She and this baking class made my trip unforgettable! I took the class alone, but the instructor makes an effort to get everyone working together. Loved it!
Macaron magic

First time to Galleries Lafayette. Lovely facility on third floor for cooking classes. Skilled, articulate and encouraging instructor who gave LOTS of helpful hints to insure success in making these tricky little gems! My adult daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the class.

Unique & Fun Experience
, Feb. 2020
Such a fun and unique experience at a very modern and cute baking school! A highlight of our trip!!!
Macarons for all!
, Feb. 2020
What a delightful instructor who presented in a lovely setting. We entered the Galeries Lafayette Apartment to find each setup carefully measured and laid out for preparation and then the fun began.
Good value, but more of a demonstation
, Jan. 2020
The space used was incredible and our teacher was fantastic. We thought it was good value for money and suited my 10 year old daughter. For the three adults, we thought it wasn’t enough involvement- it was more a demonstration. We would have preferred it to go on longer and have made macarons using our own shells and picked out our own flavours (we were told as we arrived the two flavours we were making)

The class was a lot of fun and the instructor was wonderful (knowledgeable, very friendly, and very interested in making our experience a positive one). We would definitely recommend it to others. The location of the class was ideal.
