My daughter and I went to London for a “girls weekend” and decided it was time to finally learn how to make macarons. Of course we had tried it before at home, but the result was rather poor.Samina was absolutely lovely from the start. After registering online, she welcomed us personally via email and that made us really look forward to the classWhen we arrived we found our aprons with name tags ready for us. All the recipes were portioned, which saved us from a lot of hassle. Samina was just as lovely as in her emails and instructions were clear. This time my macarons were absolutely brilliant and now I feel confident that I can make the best macarons at home. I will impress my friends for sure!
I have always been too scared to attempt making macarons myself but after the class I am now confident enough to do it! It was invaluable getting to watch an expert at work and have the chance to try it out under her guidance. The teacher, Samina, was friendly and it was a really relaxed, enjoyable evening in a lovely cookery school in Borough Market. The glasses of prosecco went down well too!
I'm not a baker but would love to make macarons for my wedding favours. I attended a macaron making masterclass with Samina who made it look incredibly easy - she gave instructions anyone can follow, pre-measured ingredients for those who like the easy option and by the end of the class I had almost mastered the skill of making yummy good looking macarons. I would definitely recommend Samina's classes whatever you knowledge of baking! Her ready-made products are very tasty and well designed too, especially the macaron making kits.
This was a fun class! Samina is a relaxed teacher and with the ingredients all weighed out beforehand, we could really focus on the processes. It was great to be able to take a variety at the end, so no one had to feel like they were missing out on favourite flavours!
