Join the brilliant Dan Beasley Harling (GBBO, series 9) live from London who will teach you the skills you need to become a master macaron maker! The class starts at 5pm UK on Saturday 12th December.
Macaron are widely regarded as one of the trickiest bakes to master, and are infamously temperamental! With all of his hard-earned knowledge, Dan breaks down all the steps, and gives invaluable insight to help you master these finicky sandwich biscuits for yourself. Paired with a decadent citrus creme mousseline, these are sure to impress even your most discerning friends.
We’ll start off the class with an introductory welcome and some background from Dan's time on TV, before we ask you to put on your aprons & bake along as you watch Dan demonstrate all the skills required to make Dan's signature Citrus Cream Macaron!
Our class will take around 1h 45 minutes as we bake our masterpieces, before you can tuck into the fruits of your labour all whilst hearing fantastic memories and stories from Dan.
