What you'll learn in this macaron class:

Macarons are delicate and beautiful and seem impossible to re-create in your home kitchen… not so!

Chef Rachel Cuzzone has an easy way about her instruction and you’ll walk away with all the confidence of an Olympic macaron baker!

Menu

  • Pumpkin Spice Macaron with Milk Chocolate Ganache
  • Pecan Macaron with Cinnamon Buttercream
  • Almond Macaron with Apple Butter

A light snack will be served and everyone will take home a box of their own creations!

What To Expect: Hands-On Class

Your chef instructor will teach you the proper techniques to elevate your cooking. You will work in groups with other guests in a fun, hands-on environment led by our professional chef instructors.

  • Work from a recipe that was created for each specific class
  • Work side-by-side with other students to prepare each dish from start to finish
  • Classes are roughly 2 1/2 hours unless otherwise noted above, and each student will enjoy a full meal of what you created in class!
  • Cooking classes are conducted in our state of the art Blue Star outfitted demonstration kitchen and each class is led by an experienced chef instructor
  • Students receive a 10% to shop before or after class

Substitutions and Class Format

We reserve the right to substitute ingredients, menus, recipes, chefs, and instructors. Unless noted otherwise, all of our classes are hands-on and participatory in style.

Our class size is limited and classes are structured to allow each student the opportunity to work closely with the chef in the preparation of dishes and to observe, up-close, the ingredients, tools, and techniques used in the making of all dishes. The exception to the hands-on format are classes labeled as “Demonstration” or “Demo” or “Lecture”.
