Soccer players are not allowed to use their hands, so they’ve all gotten very good at using their feet to make the big plays. But we still don’t understand how they’re able to tie their shoes with no hands. Must be special training. Now, if you want some special training and you’d like to use your hands, go ahead and grab one of today's SocialShopper deal options: $45 for an authentic hands-on Parisian truffle-making class for 1, includes macaron and French meringues tasting, 1 specialty drink, plus 12-piece take-home truffle gift package (value $99), or $85 for an authentic hands-on Parisian truffle-making class for 2, includes macaron and French meringues tasting, 2 specialty drinks, plus two 12-piece take-home truffle gift packages (value $198), or $45 for an authentic hands-on macaron-making class for 1, includes hand-made Belgian truffles, French meringues, 1 specialty drink, and 8-piece macaron gift package (value $99), or $85 for an authentic hands-on macaron-making class for 2, includes hand-made Belgian truffles, French meringues, 2 specialty drinks and two 8-piece macaron gift package (value $198) at Professor & the Pigeon (up to 57% off). Running up and down the soccer field is exhausting, and for half the players it ends in bitter defeat. But a macaron or truffle-making class at Professor & the Pigeon always ends with something sweet for everyone. If you’ve ever had a macaron or a truffle from Professor & the Pigeon, then you know that they can make winning a treat. Well, now you can learn those vital skills through a hands-on class with their experts. All of the secrets from the best Parisian chefs will be revealed to you in these classes. Also, you’ll get a glass of delicious juice, ice tea, coffee, or sparkling wine; some treats to enjoy and a gift package to take home. If this isn't a winning deal, then we don't know what is!

Impressive 4.5-star review rating on yelp and 86% review rating on urbanspoon!

"Macaron-making is a delicate art. The shell ingredients are simple (egg white, two types of sugar and almond flour) but it's the proper tools, techniques and timing which determines your success. I knew, like many others, I would greatly benefit from an instructor to teach me the best tips and tricks in baking a successful batch of these French pastries.
The two-hour class at Professor and the Pigeon begins with a demonstration of the techniques used in baking macarons. You gather around a table and watch as the instructor mixes together the ingredients, giving tips along the way. What is an egg white "peak"? How should you stir in the dry ingredients? Why do you compress rather than aerate the batter? What texture and consistency should you look for in your mix? I noticed that several of the class participants were taking notes.
At the end of the demonstration, we each had a chance to experience "piping": squeezing dollops of batter onto a baking sheet, which will eventually make up the shell of the macarons.
After the demonstration, you separate into three groups and are each assigned a colour and flavor for your batch of macarons. The instructor stands by and checks our batter for texture and consistency and answers any of our questions. She puts on the timer so we know when to start and stop mixing.
After we are done piping our batch of macarons onto the baking sheet, we have a 30 minute break, while we wait for the unbaked shells to form a subtle crust before it's eventually put into the oven.
After our break, we made our buttercream filling for each batch of macarons. The flavours each team was assigned included Earl Grey (which is made by crushing actual tea leaves into a fine powder), white chocolate and raspberry. After the thick filling is piped into the baked shells, you gently squeeze together the two halves, like an oreo cookie or a mini hamburger, and you have your finished macaron!
So, how did these beautiful pastries turn out? The majority of the macarons were baked and filled properly. By no means were the shapes perfect, after all, we are just beginners, but the taste and texture was like they should be. A subtle crust on the outside, and squishy sweet filling.
After taking this class and realizing how much dedication it takes to make a batch of these sweet delights, I have a new-found appreciation for the professional pastry chefs who are able to perfect the art of making macarons."

"This place is a hidden gem. Restaurant quality duck sandwiches, proper coffee, sticky toffee pudding, with big windows and lots of table space. The owner is incredible and clearly passionate about what he does. Great space for studying, socializing, or reading. Inbetween Kitsilano and Point Grey which was in desperate need of a good coffeehouse."
