Jour du Macaron

Yummy Macarons From Hugo & Victor

Colourful Macarons From Carette

Hugo & Victor Macarons

As you probably know by now I have a little weak spot for French macarons (mostly because they’re so darn pretty to photograph)… But hey, who doesn’t? And that’s why I wanted to tell you guys about today. Today is the “Jour du Macaron” here in Paris. On this day you can visit several pâtisseries around Paris who gives away a free macaron, in the exchange of a small donation that goes to “Autistes sans frontières” (Autistics without borders). Sweet treats for a good cause, it can’t possibly get much better than that!

    The photos are beautiful and those macarons are so pretty to look at :) Unfortunately, I might be one of the few persons who doesn’t like them although I enjoy any other French sweets…But then again, they are more than appealing visually!

  3. I”ve eaten the entire tower from Ladurée on my blog ( with the link here!) and now I think I”ll have that pistache et chocolat up there svp. V

  4. Okay, so I may be in LA but now you said that I’m off to get macarons from my favourite Parisian place, thanks for giving me an excuse!
