A French Affair I: Melting Macaroons

The Salon
3:00pm - 5:00pm

Held in conjunction with Christian Lacroix the costumier Part of Life & Living - Food & Culture Series

The April – June 2009 series of workshops will start with A French Affair – a series of four specially designed workshops held in conjunction with the Christian Lacroix the costumier.

Desserts must not only taste good, they must look good too! No wonder then that celebrated French patissiers such as Pierre Hermé and Ladurée dedicate so much time to turning their shop fronts into a visual feast. Explore the wonderful world of French pastries and desserts and find out what goes into producing and designing these little works of art, in particular, that elegant French creation - the macaroon. Tantalise your taste buds with the different flavours ranging from traditional rose to funky black sesame, and learn how to make it yourself in this exclusive workshop by one of Singapore's top pastry chefs, Steven Ong.
