Discover the secret to making perfect macarons at a hands-on small group class in the heart of Paris. Typically groups are between 3 to 7 people, making for an intimate experience and full attention from your host. They will demonstrate and give detailed instructions on how to make macarons using the harder-to-master, but more reliable, Italian meringue technique. Learn to pipe, incorporate a color to your shells, and make a ganache or curd filling. Once done, sit down to a shared teatime of tea, coffee, fruit juices, and some of your creations. This is the time when your host will share the story of the macaron, and a couple of other interesting stories about French culture - often tongue in cheek. Before you depart, you will be loaded with a box of your very own creations, which you can share with your friends and family - or eat yourself over the next few days!
This was such a fun time! Probably the highlight of our time in Paris. The class was small and we got to learn a lot about making these special cookies. Will defiantly do another class here when we return to Paris.

The tour with Emilie was fantastic! She adapted well to the change of my husband not attending the tour snd personalized it very well to my interests. Her insights and information about the history of Le Marais gave me great background for walking around on my own later. The food stops were amazing! I loved learning about the history of the Poilane bread, the buckwheat crepe with ham and cheese was my first savory crepe and so good! The confitture shop was out of this world and the chocolatier Edwin at EdwarT have so much wonderful info about chocolate origins as well as fantastic flavors. The Merveilleux were mervielleux! Melt in your mouth, light creamy flavor explosion!
O.M.G.!!!! I give this tour five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Our guide Nicolas took us on an amazing stroll through Montmatre, sharing the most amazing anecdotes and stories which made this experience such a memorable one. This part of the city is so different from the streets of down town. Here people hung out in the streets, in the parks and at the restaurants. It was so quiet and green. Simply lovely! And the different food, wine, chocolates and pastries we got to try. A memory for life!!!! I give my warmest recommendations for this tour. Make sure you don’t miss out on this fantastic experiences.
What a fantastic day, in spite of it being rainy, cloudy and overcast! Bastein provided us with a great narrative of the region during our time together and I was sorry to see our day come to an end. Our lunch with a French producer was just delightful…..food was delicious and our host shared her love of champagne and food with such a beautiful smile! So glad we added this trip to our Paris itinerary.
This tour was amazing. We spent the tour in the 6th Arr. We started with some sweet treats then moved to savoury. I ate so much. Full on meals and wine. I don't want to give away the spots we went to, but if you are looking for a sweet and savoury tour, then I definitely recommend this one. Francois was my tour guide.
