Excellent event ! Makes the visit to Paris so unique. It turned most of the other attendees were native Parisian residents !

As a visiting American, the chef did take the time to explain in English. He was very organized and patient - most of us where not experts in cooking.

I highly recommend the GL classes. I hope to do the macaroons one next time!

Suggestions to Galerie Lafayette organizers:

1. Please provide multiple references (even a map) as to which GL building this was. The address I saw in the email confirmation pointed to the main building

2. Perhaps give the handout first - at least latecomers can understand what steps he's missed so far.
