Many people come to Paris to learn to cook and the city offers a variety of courses to fulfil that ambition. Courses may concentrate on a particular aspect of French cooking, like bakery or classic cuisine, but the art of the patisserie has always been considered one of the most demanding of disciplines. A macaron course in Paris from Le Foodist, is designed to unravel these mysteries and provide our students with the knowledge they need to make great patisserie at home. Conventional wisdom has it that accuracy is the key to successful pastry making and our course looks at what works and what doesn't in patisserie.
This is a practical course and during the day you will find yourself up to your elbows in lovely dough. Precision in pastry making is reckoned to be key and during our macaron course in Paris we will also experiment with accuracy in mixing, kneading and baking; finding out just what works and what doesn't. In addition to the macaron, our pastry making courses also look at some of the fundamentals of French patisserie, such as pâte feuilletée and choux pastry.
Our pastry courses will have you producing beautiful macarons and melting meringues in the French, Italian and Swiss traditions. We will teach you how to produce those fantastic colours and infuse your creations with fabulous tastes. Our pastry chefs on our macaron course in Paris will also share with you their thoughts on where to find the best patisserie in France. Some famous addresses are certainly included but there will also be some surprises to discover. Having learned all the secrets of perfect croissants and crême pâtissière you will no doubt now be the perfect critic to judge these creations for yourself.
Any pastry course must of course teach the necessary skills to produce perfect patisserie but at Le Foodist we know that a love for pastry is behind all great patisserie chefs. That is why our macaron course in Paris spends time to discuss the history and culture which has resulted in the creation of the pastries we see today. With a solid grounding in the techniques of pastry baking and an appreciation of the culture which surrounds it, our students are armed with all they need for a lifetime of pastry enjoyment.
