Les Macarons with Lindsay Kinder

Saturday, April 30th

An old wives’ tale says that French macarons – those sweet, chewy, yet delicately crunchy confections – are impossible for an amateur to conquer. Under decorated French chefs, Lindsay Kinder studied the trade secrets, then practiced relentlessly in her own kitchen. She’s made great sacrifices (including eating hundreds of macarons and dipping her fingers into the buttercream) to bring you a simple, foolproof recipe. She explains why each step is important, so you can recreate it in your own kitchen.

Join us for a delightful afternoon as Lindsay demonstrates the art of the French macaron. She’ll walk you through each step of this tricky delicacy: we’ll bake the cookies, play with decorations (edible glitter and sugar flowers!), and get creative with ganache and buttercream fillings. Once our macaron shells have cooled, you’ll decorate and fill your own, and take home Lindsay’s prized recipe packet. Together, we’ll make even Ladurée drool!

Menu:

  • Whiskey Ganache
  • Mint Chocolate Chip Buttercream
  • Creamy Pistachio and Tangy Lemon Curd
