On Saturday I took advantage of the massive free time that comes with the holidays and I took a macaron-making class at Baking Arts in SOMA. It was really wonderful, and definitely worth it to learn to make a moderately complicated treat. Richard – the instructor – was incredibly kind and a great teacher. I’d love to come back and take the croissant class soon. Some photos from my macaron-baking adventure:

Now we try it ourselves – here’s the almond flour, egg white, and powdered sugar mixture.

Next you add the meringue.
