my first cooking class

would you like to come?

First thing's first..

Macarons are not impossible to make! With a little patience and attention to detail, these seemingly troublesome treats are one of the most delicious, rewarding and addictive things you can bake :)

(chelsea got pipes)

Out of requests from close friends, I have decided to hold a one night only event in which I will divulge the tips and tricks I have accumulated over making trays and trays of these dreamy treats for Teacups' Cake Stall and various other events.

It's going to be a low key, private occasion with only 12 20 spaces available. You could bring a plate of nibbles to share, and enjoy some wine/bubbly.. word on the street is some mulled wine might be on offer :) 

only $30 per person ($25 each if you bring a friend)
You will have some macarons to take home! these things retail for around $3 each, so you will definitely get your money's worth in sweets!

This coming Sunday the 21st of August.
at 1/5 Cross Street, Auckland City.

email me at talitasetyady@gmail.com to reserve your space for this one night of fun in the kitchen :)

and feel free to leave a comment below with flavour requests for the night! I know salted caramel and pistachio are strong contenders...

hope to see you there :)



  1. Just came across this from Chelsea Jade's blog. I'd love to take part, have been planning to make macarons for ages! May I request something using orange blossom water?

  2. If I was in Auckland I'd come to this in an instant. Where in Europe are you moving to? I'm in London. Come and teach me your ways! x

  3. I live in the US. Any chance you can write a book with your tips on making macarons? I would love to learn the secrets for making these treats.

  4. @ dianne: I'm in Paris, would love to go to London!!
    @ sydney 85: wow! would love to write a book someday! but for the time being.. i highly recommend this book: http://www.amazon.com/Macarons-Authentic-French-Recipes-Macaron/dp/1569758204/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1314357326&sr=8-1 it is awesome.
