Let’s celebrate Macaron Day! On March 20, bakeries around the world will offer special deals on macarons, often with a charitable component.

It’s easy to see how people can be obsessed with macarons. The petite pastry is a delicate sandwich cookie that seems light as air, boasting beautiful colours and exciting flavours. The treat may hail from France, but we have many macaron masters right here in Vancouver who turn out some absolute gems.

Choose from Chef Thierry’s selection of macarons from lychee, vanilla, pink praline, salted caramel and more. Available individually or in gift boxes of 7 or 12 pieces, macarons are offered from $2.50 to $27.85. As in years past, partial proceeds of all macaron sales will benefit St. Paul’s Foundation – a cause near and dear to Chef Thierry’s heart; St. Paul’s changed his life when he was diagnosed with a heart condition known as cardiac hypertrophy. A successful surgery in 2016 turned his health around and has made him eternally thankful for all the care he received from the dedicated team of doctors and nurses.
