Learn to create French macarons with the family at Galeries Lafayette

Discover how to make one of the most iconic French pastries during your stay with your family in Paris!

In the heart of the Opera district, in a quiet corner of Galeries Lafayette, learn the tricks of the trade from our French pastry chef to execute the perfect macaron. This 1.5 hour class breaks down the process into two stages: first, get into French chef mode by lacing up your apron to discover the steps of creating the shells and the ganache, then the filling and the assembly. Second, the best part: the tasting, shared en famille!
Uncover the mysteries of the macaron and become an expert in this precious dessert, while making a memory your kids will never forget!
