Macaron Day in Vancouver 2014

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The third annual Macaron Day in Vancouver will combine tasty French confections with support for a local cause. Vancouver’s own French Made Baking and Soirette will join worldwide celebration of “Macaron Day” on March 20th as they team up their fundraising efforts to help children-oriented charities BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and Make a Wish Foundation.

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.

Macarons (not to be confused with macaroons) are meringue-based confections commonly filled with buttercream or jam with a delicate soft and crunchy outer shell. All you need to do is visit French Made Baking or Soirette to celebrate “Macaron Day” on March 20th where you will be given a macaron and be invited to make a donation to BCCHF and Make A Wish. The suggested donation amount is $2.

French Made Baking is located at 81 Kingsway in Vancouver and they will be open from 10:00am until 6:00pm. They will have macarons for as long as supplies last. Soirette is located at 1433 West Pender in Vancouver and will be open from 10:00am to 7:00pm.
