What you'll do

I show to travelers, children and adults how to make homemade marzipan from my own personal recipe. A bowl of equal part ingredients is prepared for each participant. For that method that everyone can succeed their macaroons shells, I teach them how to do the Italian meringue. That's a little bit technical but it works well and it takes not much time. Of course I also explain the other option with French meringue. All the tricks are explained in order to help people to success doing the experience again at home. Ones the marzipan paste obtained, very brilliant after macaronnage, I show how to use the piping bag to fill it without wasting. It's very elementary! Now comes the moment when you have to train or poach this dough. I make an example at first on round templates and then I show them how to make drawings on each hull, with a double socket smaller. This step is funny and pleases a lot because travelers can then customize their macaroons. According to the quality of work, they make 12 to 15 macaroons each, which they can carry in a box arranged for this use. During cooking, I show them the making of a raspberry ganache, which they will have to put in their macaroons. Beverages and gluten-free specialties are served for the happiness of all.

Vouthy & Kanika

Having always been attracted to pastry making since I was young (when I originally started making them!), I finally passed and obtained a BEP in pastry-ice-cream-chocolate-confectionery in 2010 and continued in Connex a CAP in bakery in 2011. During these courses, I was attracted by the macaroons. I have done my job until today in my shop Parisian workshop, where I organize workshops on demand, in addition to my preparation of macaroons for sale. Throughout my experiences in this field, I was able to invent a foolproof technique to succeed the shells of macaroons. Thus, my method of manufacture is intended for all travelers, even beginners and children. They can ask all their questions in order to repeat the experience at home; especially with regard to varieties of ganache.
