Birthday Surprise (Part 2): Macaron Baking Class @ The Kitchen Society

After Tanuki Raw, we headed behind Orchard Central, cut across Killiney onto River Valley Road, and then turned right onto Kim Yam Road. I was being a child, asking “are we there yet?” every so often. It was quite a walk after a filling meal and under the scorching hot sun. The doors to The Kitchen Society¬†were a¬†welcoming sight.
