Macaroons were originally an Italian invention, possibly first created in a monastery. They arrived in France during the 16th century and since then have been a staple at family occasions, parties and other celebrations. Normally made of ground almonds, nuts, sugar and egg white, and flavoured with honey or vanilla, they are usually brightly coloured, making them very distinctive. Authentic French macaroons are simply divine, and with this class you’ll be ready to go home and start making your own immediately. Perfect for birthday gifts, crafting up a storm with the kids or simply treating yourself.
