 French Macarons and Madeleines

The ultimate confection, the French Macaron will be taught step-by-step by DLM's expert, Ghyslain. The Macaron is deceptively simple - just two piped almond discs filled with a layer of buttercream, jam or ganache but it can be incredibly frustrating for even the most talented home baker. Learn how to perfect this notoriously fickle confection into utter deliciousness! Pistachio/strawberry with Butter Cream; Raspberry with Jam; Chocolate with Ganache; and Ghyslain will also show us how to make the perfect Madeleine.
