Other things to note
Plan to dress lightly and comfortably. We will be taking our shoes off and my space is mostly carpeted so wearing socks will be a good idea. There is metered street parking or free parking around the neighborhood. The area is frequented by tourists.

I am proudly born and raised in the city of Cebu, Philippines. I did not grow up being in the kitchen surrounded by family so I had to figure everything the hard way from the start. It wasn't after graduating college that I finally discovered this passion in baking. I took a leap of faith, left my home and comfort zone, and signed up for a pastry program in San Francisco. Fast forward to more than a decade later, I find myself celebrating the 10th year of my own café in my beloved city and teaching for 6 years. I am very passionate about sharing my professional and personal journey with my guests and making them confident that anyone can bake and have fun in the kitchen.

It was a wonderful experience. It was fun to work with Eloise. She shared a lot of ideas and tips on the technique of macroon making. We had a great time. Highly recommended experience !

Eloise is so knowledgeable!! We were super impressed by how well organized she was and how she helped us feel that we could make macarons successfully after the class. I learned a ton!

Incredible macarons! Seriously, some of the best macarons I’ve ever tasted. Quick note: because of COVID, the experience takes place in her apartment instead of an industrial kitchen. But it was actually nicer this way— seeing the macarons be made with an actual apartment oven — it made the experience more accessible, and in a way, more human. I definitely feel more confident in recreating the recipe now than I would if I used industrial tools. :) Eloise is kind, knowledgeable, and down-to-earth. We wore masks and gloves the entire time. Thank for you again for this experience!

We were a little skeptical with the whole Covid-19 situation but Eloise made us really comfortable. She made all necessary arrangements to ensure safety during these times. She is very knowledgeable about baking in general but in particular about macaroons, cookies. We are complete beginners about baking but her step by step instructions made us feel at ease. The macaroons turned out amazing (lot better than we beginners hoped) & we could not have done it without Eloise’s help & expertise. Overall a 5 star experience for us.

This was my first time in SF and my first time taking a cooking class (of any sort). Eloise was very friendly, professional and receptive to all of my questions- she even made great restaurant suggestions for me. The class was so fun & I can’t wait to try the recipe at home. I highly recommend this class for a date night, girls night, or just for love of food!
