Hands-on French Macarons Class and Potluck~! Back by Popular Demand~!

  • April 26, 2014 · 12:00 PM
  • Erins' Place

We received such an overwhelming response to our last class that we decided to do a "repeat" so others could get a chance to participate~!!

Our fellow foodie and wonderful cook and baker, Erin, has offered to give us a HANDS-ON class on the technique of making FRENCH macarons!  This delightful little creation is a sweet meringue based confectionery made with egg whites, icing sugar and almond powder or ground almonds.  The macaron is traditionally filled with ganache, buttercream or jam....sandwiched between two cookies (or "wafers")......and they are as beautiful as they are delicious~!

This event will be a luncheon SALAD POTLUCK~~Each attendees is to bring a salad that will feed roughly 4-6 people.....also, please bring your favorite beverage for a luncheon.  Make SURE you note in the comments section what you will be bringing so we don't end up with 8 Chicken Salads If I do not see your salad listed I reserve the right to PESTER you until you list...


Erin will provide all the ingredients, written directions and complete instruction for making fabulous french macarons~"Flavors" will most likely be almond shell, pistachio shell and buttercream and ganache fillings.....but she is still finalizing that....There will be enough macarons for each guest to take a few home~!


We will start PROMPTLY at 12:00.  We will enjoy our potluck lunch first and then move into the kitchen and start BAKING .  Fee is $27.50 (about 1/2 off what you would pay for a similar class in town at Sur or In Good Taste~!)....PLUS you get to lunch with 7 other lovely ladies~!!


Erin has taught this class twice before and it fills up VERY quickly so grab a spot soon if you want "in"...we need at least eight attendees to make this work.

Below is a picture Erin took of her fabulous macarons....and you can find out more about her at

www.portlandivore.com    She is ALSO an incredible writer/food blogger~!

Jusque la,

    I thought the time was 6 pm for some reason. I am in the middle of a move and thought by 6 pm I would be ready for a break. I'm so sorry. I was really looking forward to attending!! Also, my plus one has a viral infection she picked up at work yesterday and is at home in bed.

    Please don't remove me from future classes, I love getting together with the girls and learning new ways to make wonderful food.
