Macaron Day is all about celebrating the fine French confectionary, the Macaron. Macaron Day TO is an opportunity for La Bamboche and other local patisseries to raise funds and awareness for Red Door Family Shelter. Thanks to some of our city's most enthusiastic and passionate macaron lovers, we hope to help create sweet memories for this annual event of city-wide fun for a good cause. Let's all give (to charity) and receive (a macaron) together!
A few years ago, Sonya and her husband spent their anniversary in Paris. They visited Laduree upon recommendations from friends, and she fell in love with the delectable treat which has now become a bit of an obsession! Her favourites: cassis and caramel sea salt. Sonya is a Lifestyle blogger with UrbanMoms.ca, a site dedicated to finding the best of city living for urban families.
Major foodie who runs so she can eat! Can be found cooking or at restaurants but not at the shopping centre! Love Macs because she's all about "variety and flavour" and these little treats do just the trick!
As a macaron lover, she bakes them several times a week & have experimented with many unique flavours (latest being candied lotus for Chinese New Year). Her favourite in the city is La Bamboche's green tea mango. Outside of Toronto, Amy enjoys macarons from Pierre Herme, Sadaharu Aoki & Lette.
Paris, Spring 2006. Sandy and her friend Priscilla went to Pierre Hermé’s shop. Her first macaron: Macaron Mogador (milk chocolate/passion fruit). She stepped outside the busy shop and took a bite. The flavours travelled to the tips of her toes and her knees buckled. She's been addicted ever since!
First Macaron was a box bought back by a friend from Laduree Paris and fell in love ever since not only because of the variety of flavours but also because of its pretty pastel colors. Vickie have been looking for the best Macaron in toronto ever since. Her fave have been La Bamboche ever since the first try and would love to try more from other cities!
