Macaroon lessons in France from a French pastry chef....need I say more? This class was phenomenal!!!! Gilles made us feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door. Gilles provides step by step, hands on instruction in English and French which allowed us to be more immersed in the experience. He was patient and constantly encouraging and teaching my 10 year old. Great class for older children and adults. The location was also fantastic with a great view of the water. I would recommend this class and instructor to everyone I know. Thanks so much Gilles for the once in a lifetime experience. -Tamara
