Hiya! Le sister her with a post! I've been away in Bangkok for a lil' bit last week, yes, with all the protests going on, but it's fine, thankfully it was the King's birthday while I was there so things were calmer.
So, I was over in Bangkok for a 3-days pastry course. I've always been interested in baking, cakes, and everything else; so I decided to give it a shot and see how much I will like it.
The 3 days were tiring, we had to stand from 9AM to 4PM, with an hour break for lunch; but time went by quickly, I truly had the happiest 3 days of the year. Glad that the group mates were really interesting people, and the teacher, Paulo, was really great as well.
I have never had any baking lessons before, so I can't say how good he is, or how well he was in teaching; but it felt legit and the class was really smooth sailing. He'd show us how to do it, and we'd get some hands-on experience every now and then.
At the very last day, we'd assemble everything that we've been working on during the 3 days, and when we're done with everything, we get to have the pastries and cakes! I had some while I was in Bangkok, and brought some back to Jakarta; they still tasted so good even after 2 days!
They have other classes not just Basic French Pastry, and every now and then they have guest chef teaching special classes. Scoot on over to their website : www.macaronbkk.com for more classes and their schedule.
It's not a sponsored post, I paid for everything, but I really enjoyed the 3 days while I was there and had so much fun. I'll most definitely be back to take their other classes. So I do recommend it to you guys who are interested, you guys can email or leave a comment if you have questions and I'll be more than happy to answer them :)
