Macaron Making – One to One Private Tuition

I am often asked on Facebook for advice on how to making macarons. Believe it or not these little mouthfuls of delight are the trickiest little things to make. With only 3 ingredients; sugar, egg whites and ground almonds a macaron shell is incredibly hard to get right – and that’s before we start talking about the oven!

So I have decided to offer one to one private tuition in a person’s own home. Why one to one? Well macarons, as I have said, are hard to perfect. At every stage of the process, especially the making of the macaronage one needs to ensure everything is just right to ensure the macarons bake correctly. I really believe that it is impossible to give each participant the attention needed in a large class situation. But why in people’s own homes? I considered giving tuition in my own kitchen but one of the trickiest things in making macarons is getting to understand the oven – failure to do so can lead to all sorts of issues: hollow shells, erupting shells, browned shells etc etc…. So by coming to someone’s home I can help them understand what the macarons are doing and what needs to be done with the oven to ensure a perfect result.

Here’s a little clip that my daughter made at college- it’s only a rough draft but I thought I would like to share it with you as it gives you a little flavour of what you will need to make macarons
