Macarons & More Cookery School

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.

Brownies, Cookies & Marshmallows (With Tim)
  • Event Details

    Learn the secret to our best selling cakes.

    In this class,  Tim will show you the secrets to our best selling salted caramel brownies and help you perfect your marshmallow skills. He will also share our favourite cookie recipes and show you how to make marshmallow cookie sandwiches.

    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 dishes 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. 

    Covid-19 Keeping you safe

    We have carefully planned how to best run our classes whilst maintaining social distancing. Each attendee has their own cooking station, including their own oven, hob, stand mixer and set of equipment. Our classes run in large commercial kitchen space, so we have lots of room. Each cooking station is separated off from an adjoining station with a screen. We have ample hand washing and hand sanitising stations.

    As it may be difficult to demonstrate technique as close up as we used to, we have set up a new audiovisual system that will show these skills effectively.

    Whilst social distancing measures are in place it is not possible to serve lunch at the end of the class as we always have. However we will still prepare something delicious for you to take away with you.

    We ask that you were face coverings on arrival and whilst cooking but these can be removed during the breaks, as you would do at a restaurant or cafe. 

    Children & Young People

    We very much welcome children and young people coming to our classes. However we are not Ofsted registered so an accompanying adult or carer must come with them. The adult does not need to buy a ticket and can wait in our reception room or be with them, whilst the class continues. However, they need to remain on site throughout. 

    Our tables and equipment are at an adult height so we would not recommend our classes to anyone under the age of 12 attend. However, we are happy for families to make their own minds up about if they feel their child is able to participate fully. We are very happy to talk through this beforehand. Please contact us to discuss if you would like.
