In this class you will learn to bake perfect, buttery shortbread, try your hand at  choux pastry  with raspberry eclairs, get to grips with iced lemon fondants and  master the all important “macaronage” for a coconut, dark chocolate and lime macaron.
This four hour class includes professional demos and plenty of hands-on baking as well as lots of helpful tips and baking advice.
When all is baked, we invite you to sit down, relax and enjoy a cup of tea whilst sampling your baked delights. The added bonus is that there will still be plenty to take home and share with friends and family.
The class will be held at Macaron House in Newbury – a perfect space for a relaxing and inspiring class.
Places are limited so do book soon. At only £75 per person, this really is a baking class not to be missed!

Macaron Flavour of the Month – May

Millionaires' Macarons from The Real Macaron Company

Millionaires’ Macarons

Since moving south, we have been blessed with regular visits from the family and there seems no better excuse for baking than shared tea-times.  Millionaires’ Shortbread is a great favourite and, although terribly decadent and groaning with calories, it is one if the most delicious and essential components of a serious tea trolley. Inspired by the traditional recipe using Carnation Condensed Milk, I decided to experiment with a Millionaires’ Macaron – and am delighted with the result. The pale biscuit-coloured macaron shells, flavoured with a touch of vanilla, are sandwiched together with a layer of rich, creamy, fudge-y caramel and a layer of dark chocolate ganache and topped with a swirl of white chocolate ganache. There really isn’t much else to say! – just enjoy with a simple cup of tea!
