New! I’m a teacher for French pastry-making over on Skillshare.com and I have a fun and easy-to-follow video class about French macarons I think you’ll love:

How to Make French Macarons: A Skillshare Video Class by FoodNouveau.com

I designed my Skillshare class both for novice bakers who want to learn new skills, and for experienced bakers who are seeking to master a new and impressive dessert. The class is divided into 15 short videos that will show you the essential equipment you need, the important steps to follow, the techniques to master, and the potential pitfalls to avoid. You can watch the videos on your own time, start practicing, share with other budding macaron makers, and ask me questions if you encounter difficulties along the way.

I’m confident that this video class will enable you to create perfect macarons. Watch Now!
