About The Event

Join Chef Melissa Walnock, a classically trained pastry chef from the CIA Apple Pie Bakery Café, in the Watergrasshill kitchen studio to discover the secrets to making the perfect French Macarons. Macarons, not to be confused with coconut macaroons, are meringue based and are made up of 2 cookies sandwiching a jelly or buttercream filling. Bakers of all levels are invited to join in on this fun evening! Students will learn how to make and decorate macaron shells, which includes learning how to cook sugar and make Italian meringue. They will also make buttercream and fruit jam fillings with step-by-step guidance from Chef Walnock.


At the end of the class, each participant will go home with a box of their own pastries!
