BON MACARON UNIVERSITY offers hands-on, interactive classes of 5-8 students (maximum) in the bakery Mac Lab. Children ages 13-17 must be accompanied by an adult.
LEVEL I: Interactive demo class is suited for all skill levels. Bon Macaron Founder/Chef, Catherine Cooper, has an extensive teaching background and earned her diplomas in Classic French Cuisine and professional macaron production in Paris, France. Gain knowledge and useful tips as you observe the technical macaron process and work on your piping skills. Students take home the Bon Macarons made during class!

"Producing macaron is an artisan craft and takes time and committment to master. There are numerous technical aspects. The three key steps are: Making the perfect meringue, the method of mixing the batter called, "macaronage technique," and hand-piping the shells." - Chef Catherine

"Catherine, I am so excited to tell you that I followed your technique instructions from class today and my macarons turned out perfectly! It's quite a change from my flat chocolate disaster a few months ago. It was such a great class! M.F. - 2016
"Thanks Chef Catherine! I had no idea macarons were so time consuming to make! I now have a higher appreciation for them! You are a great teacher and your class simplifies the technical process! L.C. - 2016
Hi Catherine, I just wanted to tell you I finally got around to trying your recipe at home...I have made thousands of macarons over the last couple of years and I have to say, this batch was far and above the best consistency...I really enjoyed the class and the tips you gave. It was all very helpful. Now I'm inspired to go to Paris and take a class there... or at least eat billions of macarons there! J.W. - 2017
