Macarons are light-as-a-feather French confections that can be assembled pulling from a mix-and-match palette of sweet fillings and bases.


Pretty and popular, macarons have a reputation for being tricky to make. The methods and recipes at Rutland Cookery School will provide you with the knowledge, skill and confidence to master this delicate patisserie every time.

We will make three flavours, raspberry, pistachio and chocolate. You will make a chocolate ganache and a white chocolate and fresh raspberry filling will be demonstrated. Filling for the pistachio macarons will be provided already made, as it takes time to set to the required temperature for piping. You will take home approximately 10 filled macarons of each flavour – 30 in total – so do bring plenty of storage containers .

The workshop starts promptly at 10am and finishes at 2pm. A light lunch will be provided of homemade soup and the school’s own sourdough with cheese and fruit.

Other information:

All refreshments, equipment and aprons are provided. A booklet of the day’s recipes is also provided at the end of the workshop.

Everyone works individually at their own workstations, sharing only a 4 burner induction hob and standard size fan assisted oven with one other learner. We all work together at the same pace with each stage demonstrated before you do it yourself.

Please wear flat shoes with a closed toe – this is for your safety and comfort as we will be on our feet most of the time.

When booking, please advise of any accessibility issues. Rutland Cookery School is committed to being as inclusive as possible and we will do our utmost to accommodate you but we do need to know in advance. We have an adjustable workstation for those who may need to sit down or are in a wheelchair.
