A wonderful morning spent with Noémie making macarons. Noémie is warm and a great and experienced teacher, very organised and generous with tips on lots of things. A real highlight of our trip to Paris! Elaine and Niall

This was an amazing experience with my daughter. It was everything she had hoped for. Noemi did a great job of engaging her in conversation in French.

Noemie was an incredible teacher! I can’t wait to take my macarons and new skills back home and try to make a batch of my own.

Neomi was wonderful, very professional funny and interesting. It made the workshop lively and dynamic
