Macaron Day for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation
March 19, 2017 @ 8:00 am - March 20, 2017 @ 6:00 pm
Macaron Day was founded in France (le jour du macaron) by Pierre Hermé years ago. It’s a day to celebrate the colours of spring with a bright palette of treats. Macaron Day events will be happening overseas, in New York, and in Toronto. Over the last few years it has become a Vancouver tradition as well.
French Made Baking at 81 Kingsway (at Broadway) in Vancouver is participating again this year, supporting BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. NEW this year, they will host Macaron Day here for two days! Sunday, March 19th from 10:00am to 5:30pm, and Monday, March 20th from 8:00am to 6:00pm while supplies last.
A donation jar will be available at French Made’s Mount Pleasant café and at least 30% percent of all the sales of macarons will be donated to the Foundation. There will be 15 to 18 flavours of regular macarons, different flavours of 3” macarons cakes and a selection of animal-shaped macarons (Teddy bear, panda, unicorn and Hello Kitty). A limited quantity of chocolate-coconut vegan macarons will also be available.
