Question from Sujin Y.
What kind of oven are you using? Convection or convention?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Kim! The chef uses a convection oven but it works well as a traditional oven (no fan setting) as long as you bake at the right temperature, you are fine. Hope this helps!

Question from Anonymous
Is there a vegan version of this class or would I be able to attend this class but make adjustments so that my macarons would be vegan?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! There is no adjustment possible for vegan macarons. The macaron shells are made with egg white (meringue) and the filling is chocolate ganache made with heavy cream. Thank you.

Vincent was amazing! Well prepared and efficient. It was a small intimate class (I didn’t know what to expect when I signed up). I loved that it was a small class! Vincent was able to customize the class to us and all of our questions were answered. It wasn’t intimidating at all. Plus being able to be hands on was great! He was so nice and thorough, and shared his recipes!
