French Made will be celebrating the 5th Macaron Day in Vancouver on March 20 and you are all invited to share the love of macarons and support BC Children’s Hospital Foundation!
“Le Jour du Macaron” started in Paris in 2005, invented by famous Chef Pierre Hermé and French Made initiated the tradition in Vancouver in 2012. This year we will be celebrating le Jour du Macaron at our Mount Pleasant café (81 Kingsway) and at the Atelier kitchen in South Vancouver.
At the café, a donation jar will be available and each customer will receive a free mini macaron and a percentage of all the sales of macarons will be donated to the Foundation. There will be 17 to 18 flavours of macarons and also large macarons (3”) in different flavours.
We are also very happy to announce the launch of a new kind of macaron: an eggless vegan-friendly version of French Macarons that even non-vegans will enjoy! For the moment, one flavour is available: dark chocolate with Nuez date-almond milk and coconut milk. We are working on developing a couple of other flavours for later in the spring. For now vegan macarons are available frozen every day at the café (wait 10-15 minutes to enjoy them) and we will have some fresh ones on Macaron Day.
At the Atelier, Chef David will be teaching all the secrets to make perfect macarons on March 19 and 20. The 2.5 hours hands-on class is limited to 7 students each day and everyone will walk home with a macaron-making kit and the macarons made during the class (about 24 macarons per student).
The cost is $110 tax included and 25% will also be donated to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Registration limited to 7 students each day, first come first served, please reserve your spot by phone (604-558-4880) or email, partial proceeds donated to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
