Today we celebrate the delicate, delightful, dainty and delicious treat which is the macaron!
Jour du Macaron or Macaron Day is an annual event which celebrates the French macaron. The inaugural Jour du Macaron was celebrated in Paris, nine years ago, by it's creators, Pierre Hermé and Relais Desserts.
Since then, Macaron Day celebrations have spread to cities throughout the world including London, Budapest, Vancouver and New York City. Each year, Macaron Day is celebrated on the 20th of March.
For Macaron Day, this year, we have partnered up with Gourmandize UK & Ireland for the Macaron Master Challenge. The winner of the challenge will receive one of our Chocolate Macaron Baking Kits to help them continue to perfect their macaron technique; and because the right ingredients truly make a difference in the texture and quality of your macarons. The challenge starts today, the 20th of March, and runs for two weeks. View the Macaron Master Challenge details.
If you would rather learn our recipe, first hand, we will be holding two Macaron Baking Classes on the 22nd of March. Our classes offer one on one attention in a vibrant group environment, where individual questions and comments are always welcome. We cannot wait to share our love of macarons with you this Macaron Day!
