    ROCKLAND — “Veggies to Table co-founder Alain Ollier, French native and proficient baker of all that is sweet and sinful, will be the instructor in the art of making the much coveted French macaron cookie–the quintessential French treat!” said Penobscot Bay Language School, in a news release.

    Join staff and volunteers from Veggies to Table and Penobscot Bay Language School on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2022, at 28 Gay Street, Rockland, for this intimate, hands on class and learn how to make these quintessential French treats.

    “Not only will you have fun, you will be helping Veggies to Table grow and donate even more produce for those in need in our Midcoast communities,” said PLS. “Sampling, of course, mandatory!”

    The cost is $60 (per session). 

    Group size for each session is limited to 6 participants. Sessions start at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 2 p.m. All participants will be sent home with their own little bag of macarons.

    This event is hosted at the Penobscot Bay Language School in Rockland.
