Fun. Instructive. Well worth it.

We had a great time! liked how goal oriented you were... you gave us everything we needed to know, and let us get down to business. A very practical course!
Only thing i'd change is having such a late class on sunday... would have been better in the afternoon, when we're not so tired.

My boyfriend and I are no strangers to cooking/baking classes for date nights, but this one takes the cake....err, macaron. Chef Simon is such a pleasure (just don't call macarons French burgers, ok?). He is friendly, loves to joke around, but still teaches you all the skills very well. He really was a great part of the evening whereas we've had instructors for other classes who made it a not-so-good experience.
There were 11 people in my class and we split into 3 groups to make the cookie shells for the three separate flavors- chocolate, hazelnut, and raspberry. Then, each person was on their own to make their own tray of cookie shells and add the fillings. Chef Simon gave us just the right balance of traditional instruction to hands-on with guidance. We definitely learned the process A-Z but also how to take shortcuts without ruining the product when you don't have all the required time to spare (the process should take about one whole day while the class is only 2.5 hours).
The only complaint I have is that you can't really eat the macarons until 24-48 hours after they're made!!
Tips: wear something comfortable, including shoes. Ladies, keep your hair out of the way. You can bring wine to sip on while working! Take plenty of pictures of each step so you can have something to use as a guide when you try to make them on your own. Oh, and work out those arms before this class because there's a lot of manual mixing and folding!

The class to prepare creme brulee,madelines, and chocolate mousse was fun and in addition Chef Simon taught us techniques as well.

Took a macaron class after several failed attempts on my own. Learned a new process for macaron stages - which included hand mixing the base in three stages then adding meringue in slowly. Still need to work on my piping skills as the proof is evident when the shells arrive out of the oven.
Overall, very informative hands on class. Bring wine or champagne to make it a little more lively!

Great French baking class and fun was had by all. Our profiteeroles came out so well and tasted so great that lots of my friends thought I had bought them at an upscale bakery. I left feeling much more confident than when I started.
