Handcraft your love for your valentine, with Macaron Making @ Academy of Pastry Arts Malaysia
In conjunction with Valentine’s Day, the Academy of Pastry Arts Malaysia, a premier culinary and pastry arts institution, is holding a Macaron and Chocolate Workshop on the 10th of February 2018 (Saturday).
This 8-hour workshop is dedicated to those wanting to handcraft delightful and mouthwatering treats for their loved ones! Both couples and individuals are welcome to participate in this unique workshop.
So naturally, I brought Kelly and boy did we have a blast!
Serving as a space to create a more memorable, meaningful Valentine’s Day, this workshop is a baking experience that provides participants with professional guidance from the Academy’s own international award-winning chefs.
The Workshop will feature special moulded heart-shaped macarons and chocolates, and participants will be able learn how to make these edible pieces of art from start to finish. The workshop comes complete with an exquisite gift box to present the memorable creations.
As anyone who has ever attempted to make French macarons will admit, there is nothing simple about making them. You could follow a recipe to the ‘T’, and things could still go horribly wrong leaving you only with cracked, bumpy or lumpy shells.
So here, the Chef dispenses baking secrets to create the perfect macaron and gives a LOT of help to guide us to our final destination, which is creating the perfect heart shaped dessert.
Everyone who is present for the Workshop is promised a good amount of one-to-one attention from the chefs as it mimics the Academy’s main teaching style and academic philosophy, which prioritises hands-on learning.
“As both a Chef and a husband, I often dedicate handcrafted desserts to those I love. Anyone can buy a dessert, but nothing beats being romantic than making it from your heart,” says Chef Niklesh Sharma, the Founder and Managing Director of Academy of Pastry Arts Malaysia.
“This workshop guarantees not only the end product, but also the skill, knowledge or practical training acquired which can be applied in other dessert-making adventures,” he continues.
So, if you’ve run out of ideas of what to do on this special day, this is just the place! Spend a day doing this fun activity, and what’s more, you’re learning something that you can take back with you! Recreate the recipe at home and watch your friends’ jaws drop in awe when you present them with your lovely HOMEMADE macarons!
