You’ll learn the following skills which you will then be able to build on in following classes:

  • Ingredients – what is required for bread and how you can ring the changes
  • Proving – where, how, how long!
  • Shaping – making free form shapes as well as using tins
  • Baking – how to achieve a lovely crust and recognise when your bread is baked

This class will be held at The Real Macaron Company in Newbury – the perfect space for a relaxing and inspiring class, on Saturday 27th April – 12.30 – 4.30pm

The cost is £75 per person including all ingredients and recipes, and refreshments during the afternoon.  Places are limited to five in order to ensure that everybody has plenty of time for questions and personal interaction with Rachel.

Macaron Master Classes, morning, afternoon or evening

Really looking forward to moving into our new shop premises in Newbury.  The first Macaron Master Class will be held there on 11th October – and we are still taking bookings for that class.  New dates for October and November are on the website and, to give everyone the chance to come along and learn the delights of macaron baking, I have included weekday morning classes and evening classes  as well as Saturday afternoons.  Do let me know what would suit you best – I can be flexible and build a class around you and your friends.  Learn to bake macarons in time for Christmas – they are certain to give the traditional mince pies and chocolate log a run for their money!
