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.

The afternoon with Eloise was fun and informative. I learned a lot and enjoyed hearing about her experience running a cafe in SF. I recommend — it’s a great bonding activity, with scrumptious take-aways.

The experience as a whole was good. I took my 10 year old daughter while on spring break. There were a lot of rules put in place that I did not know until AFTER booking the experience. Due to Covid we were instructed that we could not use the restroom in the home. And we could not our phones to take pictures to document the experience. Eloise also had her son present, which was not an issue, but often times I felt the need to interrupt and make certain my daughter had a chance to help in the preparation. I paid for the experience to MAKE the macaroons, not watch.

Eloise is a lovely hostess. She was very knowledgeable about the art of macaroon making. These were the best macaroon we’ve ever had. Thank you Eloise for your patience s and kindness.

Eloise is an amazing teacher! I took the Macaron class and macarons were something that always intimidated me in the kitchen. It’s not as easy as it seems on YouTube. Eloise is not only a great teacher but she has an amazing passion for this. She gave us great tips and showed us step by step to ensure that we baked successful macarons. She is very knowledgeable in making macarons that I wouldn’t have gotten on YouTube videos and recipes on line. I am so glad I stumble on this macaron class and I definitely recommend everyone to take this class. I walked away from this feeling more confident that I can make a successful macaron. My friend and I that took this class, we made a total of 20 macarons to take home. Thank you Eloise!!
