Had an awesome time with my fiancé in this baking class! Brenda was full of energy and kept things fun and educational despite it being a Sunday afternoon at 4 pm! Very hands on and judgment free zone makes sure bakers of all levels are learning and having fun. Make sure you go to the village location and not Harlem though! Call ahead to confirm address to be safe but that was my own mistake.

No where in this Groupon does it say that you might be paired with 2 other strangers. The chef will not let you know in the emails when you reserve. You come in and suddenly you are paired with 2 other strangers, on one station equipped for a couple. You might just get as unlucky as me.

I did the macaron class with three teens and they loved it! The chef was great and helped everyone ... the macarons were delicious.

About French'Encas

Simon Herfray, a French native hailing from the Vendée region, is a master's-degree-certified pastry chef and baker. He's whisked and sculpted fine treats for esteemed establishments in the London and New York culinary scenes—Aubaine and Bluebird in South Kensington, Falai and Café M Studio in Manhattan, and Bacchus Bistro and La Défense Bistro in Brooklyn.

At French'Encas, Simon directs his world-class sweetmeat techniques toward kitchens full of apron-wearing students and in-disguise dentists. Whether it's their first or hundredth time gripping pastry bags and whisks, attendees handcraft their very own macarons, chocolate-lemon tarts, chocolate fondant, and full quiche lorraine meals. Some classes cater to advanced students, some cover basics, and others suit all skill levels. And when not instructing students, Simon and his team whip up treats for parties and other events.
