Ever since we opened our Norwich shop in 2013, one of the questions we hear the most is “Do you do cookery classes?” Well, we’re delighted to say that yes, we do.
The Macarons & More Cookery School opened in January 2015, thanks to the support of our brilliant sponsors including Belling, Magimix and Kenwood. The cookery school is based in our Norwich bakery, where we make most of our gorgeous treats. It’s the perfect place to come and be inspired by all things sweet.
We run a range of hands-on classes throughout the year, taught by Tim Kinnaird and the Macarons & More team – plus the occasional special guest. Designed to teach keen amateur cooks new skills and recipes, our classes start with the basics and will help you create delicious cakes and bakes at home. We teach small classes of up to eight. Each participant has their own fully-equipped work station, and will receive plenty of one-to-one support throughout the session.
Our classes would make the perfect gift for the baker in your life, or a great treat for yourself. Take a peek at what we’ve got on and book your place online.

This hands-on session will help you perfect macarons.
Macarons are the supermodels of the cake world. At their best, elegant and indefinable delights; at worst, temperamental divas. Once you have learned here how to keep them on the straight and narrow, you will consistently produce a cake that has helped revolutionise modern patisserie.
This hands-on session will help you perfect macaron shells and a variety of fillings. The Macarons & More team will cover macarons and fresh fruit-filled large macarons.
Our classes are run in small groups, with each participant having their own workstation, oven, and equipment. We want you to be able to easily replicate the cakes you make when you get home. We, therefore, give you all the recipes to take away and lots of advice on where to source more specialist ingredients and equipment.
Refreshments, including freshly baked cakes, are provided on arrival and through the course. Lunch is served at the end. All cake boxes and bags are provided to take your baking home safely.
Classes are suitable for ages 12 and over. Anyone under the age of 16 should be accompanied by a ticket holding adult.
