I recently had the opportunity to take a macaron making class at Sur La Table in Boca Raton, Florida while visiting my aunt. Since we do not have a Sur La Table in north Florida, I had no idea how amazing their cooking classes were, but I quickly found out that they’re really great!
I’ve made macarons at my house many times but I still had questions about some issues that kept reappearing while making them (sticking to the silicon, too thick of batter, etc.). I was so excited to receive a professional lesson and it surely did not disappoint.
As we arrived, they had beautiful, warm pop-overs displayed for us to choose from. And if that weren’t enough, they had an amazing strawberry butter to compliment it. YUMMY!
We started off by watching our instructor make a batch. She was extremely comprehensible as she gave instructions. It was then our turn to make ours…
Batch #1: Strawberry Ganache Macarons
These were SO tasty and relatively easy to make. I especially enjoyed learning how to make the ganache, which was much easier to make and work with than I imagined.
Batch #2: Honey Cardamom Macarons
These were hands-down my FAVORITE!! Since making these, I have put cardamom in everything!! This was such a beautiful combination of flavors!
This was such a fun class to take and I would highly recommend it for anyone that is living or visiting near a location that has a Sur La Table! The macaron process can be a little fussy but it’s always worth it when you get to eat the finished product… even the mess-ups!
