London-based food blogger and Serious Eats community member Su-Lin shares her experience at last weekend's L'Aterlier de Chefs' macaron class on her blog, Tamarind and Thyme.
Considering how prefect the macarons came out, it seems like a good class. She includes some macaron-making tips, such as banging the trays with the piped-out batter to get rid of the air bubbles and letting the batter dry out before putting the trays into the oven. I did neither of these things when I made my first batch of slightly malformed macarons, which explains a lot.
