The art of Macarons, simplified

Making macarons from home can seem intimidating. That is why I decided to create a course to help people who want to learn the art of making beautiful, AND tasty macarons.

Because the course is designed for the home baker, I make sure to simplify every step of the process to make the course as easy to follow as possible

I believe that if explained in simple terms, with a lot of details and with high quality videos, everyone can make macarons.

With this course, you get lifetime access to foolproof recipes with videos and PDF to make sure that you will succeed.

Truth is: making great macarons is not about having THE recipe.

Recipes you will find online will focus solely on the recipe itself, and will never explain the process in detail

Truth is, the success to macarons making mostly lies in how you understand the science behind its ingredients and how they interact with each other.

The real value of this course is not the recipes but rather giving you the knowledge to understand the macarons making process in-depth so you can create something original and troubleshoot any problems you might have.

If you have made macarons before, you will hugely benefit from this as you will finally be able to understand where your problems are coming from.

All your questions about macarons finally answered

The Frequently asked questions of the course will answer to all the questions you ever had about macarons: Why are they hollow? Why do they crack? Why do they spread?

And if you need more assistance you can always reach out to me!

Bonjour, I am Said M'Dahoma AKA The Pastry Nerd

I am a French-Comorian baker living in Calgary, Canada. I was born and raised in Paris, where I got my Neuroscience PhD and ate pastries all the time.

Eight years ago, when I moved to Canada, I started missing French pastries so much that I started baking on my own. My passion for baking grew so much that I decided to use my science knowledge two years ago for baking instead of research and launched the Pastry Nerd.

Since then, I was elected Foodie of the year for Western Canada, became a regular guest on national Canadian radio, and grew from 500 to 139K followers across different social media platforms with my account @thepastrynerd. I sold my pastries at pop-up events but my real passion is in teaching !

So far I gave pastry classes to more than 300 students and helped them improve their baking.

You will never walk alone

What distinguishes me from other course providers is my availability and willingness to guide you through the process: if you have any questions about any steps in my course, you can be sure that I will always find the time to respond to your email, and help you get better at making macarons!

Anyone can make macarons!

Here is a testimonial from one of my students

After my great success with Said’s cream puff/eclair course, I was very excited to try his macaron course. I have 2 pieces of advice for those who love macaron: take this course and review all Said’s instructions including the FAQs before you start baking. My first attempt was good but not great- but fortunately Said responded to every message and provided guidance. Second attempt (the pistachio) was perfection! So much fun and really not hard with Said’s clear videos and notes. I’ll be making more macarons for the holidays and then dive into his croissant course. Merci beaucoup Said!!

These are Pamela's first macarons!

"My first time making macarons and I was thrilled with how they turned out! Said's macaron course allowed me to check off an item from my baking bucket list. His step by step videos and clearly written recipes made it easy to succeed. Any question I had about the process or my results were answered swiftly and thoroughly. If you've always wanted to learn to make macarons, I highly recommend Said's course." Pamela Assivero (@idocakes on Instagram)

Here are some of the reviews I got for teaching macarons in the past.

"Said did a wonderful job of teaching a small group of us to make macarons.  Said was very patient and even though macarons can be finnicky, he made it feel very achievable to produce lovely, rich cookies. I will definitely be looking out for future opportunities to take another course with Said and have recommended this one to friends!"


"The macaron class was great! Said was really engaging and made sure everyone in class was comfortable with each step of the process." Hooda S.
