If you have ever thought how wonderful it would be to learn how to make those delicious macarons like the French so enjoy, then sign up and take Muriel's class. You will not only learn how delicate these cookies really are, but that you must have specific training like her class! You learn all the proper basics as well as... More

I took a traditional macaron baking class with Muriel last summer and I am so glad I did. She really gives you the attention and encouragement needed to successfully make these wonderfully colorful cookies! It is clear that she is very passionate at what she does and I'm happy she shares her knowledge through her cooking store. Merci Muriel!

I recently took the Macaron class while I was in Seattle. My culinary background doesn't host a French dessert background so I was excited to pick up macaron experience. The shop is very bright and the working space was clean. As a solo traveler I was paired off with strangers which is to be expected. I would have liked to... More

I took a desserts course from Muriel and would totally recommend it! The class totally helped bump up my (former professional) kitchen game; Muriel is a wonderful instructor and creates a warm friendly environment for experienced and debutants alike. She also has a Paris box subscription that I emphatically recommend, it is chock-full of goodies from France and a nifty... More

I signed up for a macaron class because I tried all the top notch macaron shops in US and in France yet never attempted to make one! Muriel was very accomodating as I called to make reservations (their class was listed full/closed on line!). Muriel did a wonderful job of making every procedure very simple to understand. We realized how... More

Dear Eunice, Thank you for your comments about the macarons class you took last month. I just want to stress out 2 things: - the sugar content of the filling (French buttercream) is 2 table spoons for 20 macarons... not that much when you think about it... - as explained at the end of the class, the texture of the...

I signed up for a macaron class because I've always wanted to learn how to make them. Muriel was such an amazing instructor, showed us the right way to make macarons and, almost as important, the tips to avoid the failures. She was funny, delightful, incredibly knowledgeable and the class was a pure joy! I want to go back for... More

I always heard that Macarons where difficult to make! Muriel made it very easy! I had a blast that Saturday morning learning to make Lavender, Coconut/Chocolate and Roquefort Macarons. Yes, Roquefort Macarons for a salty appetizer! Greatest idea ever and delicious! Generous, fun, informative, Muriel spend 3 hours with us teaching us her secret on how to make perfect Macarons....

Muriel made the impossible possible during her French Macaron class. During this private class for six, she dedicated herself to us by introducing ingredients, explaining processes, and making sure the class was fun. From "bubble bath" to "elephant trunk" to "bird beak", our labor of love turned into the most delicious macarons ever. It's a great feeling being able to... More

Enjoyed a "Sisters Weekend" in Seattle. One of my sisters booked us a group class where we made a scrumptious Salmon Quiche with a melon dessert. Great fun visiting, learning new techniques (I've been cooking for 40 years) and meeting new people. Muriel was awesome, informative, and fun. Our quiche tasted great and we had a full lunch and dessert... More
