Claire, the trainer, was very passionate and friendly. She was very attentive and making sure everyone understood every step. The macarons presented for the course were a perfect choice. Chocolate shell with salted chocolate ganache and pistachio stuffed with pistachio butter. Very good! It's always a pleasure coming across that kind of people that brightens up your day.

Great, cute class!! The location was gorgeous and in a bustling area. The instructor was beyond lovely. The class was informative, but we didn’t do much as it goes to making the macarons. It’s not the fault of the class, because macarons are a tricky thing to make, but it just felt a little lack luster. They should have given us wine or champagne as I watched the process. Kidding....kind of.
