Duration: 34:51

Recreate the patisseries of Paris in your own kitchen as you learn how to make and bake perfect macarons. Chef and pastry instructor Colette Christian spent 10 years creating her signature macaron recipe to ensure her students had success right from the start. Colette demonstrates her technique step by step — from “zhooshing” the dry ingredients to whipping up just the right meringue for use in macarons. Then, she takes you through the art of macaronage, the folding together the meringue and dry ingredients, until the batter is smooth, shiny and flowing. Finally, Colette offers tips for piping out and baking the macaron batter so that you get perfectly smooth tops with signature macaron “feet.”
