What pastry originated in Italy and made its way to France because of Queen Catherine de’ Medici in the 16th century? The macaron, of course! This tiny treat consists of two almond meringue cookies or shells that are flaky and chewy with a lightly sweet filling in the middle. The Macaron Shoppe will teach you how to carefully combine a hot sugar syrup, egg whites, powdered sugar, and almond flour to get a thick macaron batter. Then, practice piping your shells with precision. Take home some premade macarons too! Oui Oui!
