For a while, “Talk Like a Pirate Day” was possibly my favourite of all the random ‘Days’, but Macaron Day has to take the cake (or biscuit!).
Macaron Day, or Jour du Macaron in Paris, was created by none other than the fine purveyor of macarons that had me crossed-eyed over salted caramel in a previous blog – Pierre Herme ( click here). This year the proceeds raised in Paris go towards helping Autism, but the charity changes each year.
Unfortunately not everywhere in the world has taken the Parisian lead but no matter where you are on 20 March 2012, what better way to celebrate Macaron Day than with a macaron!! Run, don’t walk, to your nearest patisserie and do yourself a favour – get the salted caramel!!
