LADURÉE SALON DE THÉ inside of Harrods.
I ate my first French Macaron there. It was the most delicious "cookie" I ever tasted, and I determined to learn how to make them someday. Don't they look delicious?
For Christmas my son and daughter-in-law gave me a gift card from Sur la table. While looking through their catalog, I noticed they were offering a class on Valentine Macarons. I immediately called to register.
The class was Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 11:00 a.m.
I was there bright and early to ask permission to take photos so I could blog about the class, and they graciously granted me permission. Below is their teaching kitchen.
The clip board with my name, macaron instructions and black apron were awaiting me. There were 16 eager students in the class.

After the macarons were baked, they were divided amongst the students, and each lady
filled their own macarons from a variety of fillings. Due to space restriction, I've only posted a couple of photos of the class session. It was a "hands on" class, but those photos are not included here. The class was awesome and I gave it five stars!
These are the macarons that I brought home. They were as yummy as I remembered. My favorite was pistachio. Now to make them at home in my own kitchen!
