I am originally from France and have been a pastry chef for 25 years. For the past 14 years I have been living in Sydney.
From 2010 to 2015 I was a teacher at the renowned culinary school “Le Cordon Bleu” in Ryde, and taught patisserie demonstrations and private classes. In 2012 I started my own business, Patisserie le Marais in Bondi and have since moved it to Maroubra. My favourite things to teach are croissants, Danish pastries and puff pastry products. I really love these products because you can do so so much with them.

Today I am so lucky to be the only one person to learn how to make macaron. Teacher is from France.He is professional with teaching work and is so enthusiastic. Before we started he prepare everything well and I follow his step. We talked a lot about the cake and his experience. He has a 35-year-work Experience. That is really amazing. So don't care about the details. He can manage all that thing. Finally I successfully make the macaron and it's so easy of course it can't be so smooth withdout the help of the teacher. I think I need to do it again at home so that make the fee worthy.

I really enjoyed this course. I basically had a private class because I was the only person who booked that particular time slot. Joel is a lovely teacher who really enjoys teaching and is so good at it. I really learned a lot, got to work with fresh and high quality ingredients and left the class with a big box of beautiful macarons.

If you like baking,no matter if you are a professional or not, this class is for you .

Learning the art of macaron making with Joel was fantastic. I discovered he is a qualified teacher and you could tell. Everything ran so smoothly, he created a lovely atmosphere for learning and enjoying the process, with lots of delicious results to enjoy. I learnt so much, the space was perfect, ingredients were fresh and there were plenty of them. I am keen to start making these myself for family and friends, highly recommend, thank you

My daughter and I did the macaron making class together.
Joel was just fantastic as a teacher. Very passionate about helping others get the macarons just perfect.
We really enjoyed it and the time went so quickly. Got to take home a large macaron as well as some smaller ones. They were delicious!
Venue was easy to find, and parking right across the road.
Couldn't recommend Joel's classes more highly.
Well worth the money.

Honestly the best baking class I've ever attended. The energy from chef Joel was amazing as well as his knowledge. If you're looking for a place to start your culinary journey, Patisserie Le Marais is where it's at.

The class was great, and the teaching was amazing - patient, supportive and very informative. And enjoying the results at the end was just the raspberry on the macaroon!

Joel Bardan is an excellent teacher and I absolutely loved this class. Joel manages to clearly explain the concepts, demonstrate and then let you do it all over again, all whilst keeping a close eye on all students. The class is also lots and lots of fun. This is the second class I have done with him (first one being the croissant making class which was equally excellent) and I will certainly do any other class he comes up with in the future. An excellent way to practice being a pastry chef in his commercial kitchen using all of his tools of the trade. I can't wait for the next class!

Did the Macaron making class with my teenage son. Had so much fun. Joel is warm and wonderful teacher full of so much knowledge. Will certainly look out for more classes to do.
