Celebrate Macaron Day in Kelowna

Everyone is invited to share the love of macarons and support Kelowna General Hospital Foundation.

Sandrine French Pastry & Chocolate will be celebrating Macaron Day in Kelowna on Monday, March 20. Everyone is invited to share the love of macarons and support the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation.

“Jour du Macaron” or Macaron Day was started by a Parisian pastry chef Pierre Hermé in 1995. Over the years it has gained international recognition as a way to fundraise for local charities while enjoying the macaron.

The concept is simple: macaron-lovers get to enjoy the French treat at three locations in Kelowna, and 25 per cent of all macaron sales that day will go towards the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation.

Macarons are a delicious treat is made of two round meringue-based cookie shells, held together by a soft filling such as ganache, lemon curd or buttercream. Very fine almond powder, egg whites and sugar are combined to create an initial crisp and airy bite, leading into the macaron’s filling – featuring whatever humble or exotic flavor that has inspired pastry chef Sandrine.

Creating these delicate little cookies is an art that takes great skill. Sandrine will be offering a wide selection (while quantities last) including the more traditional macaron flavours such as chocolate ganache, pistachio, and raspberry but don’t be afraid to try the Cassis, Rosé, Passionfruit or Olive Oil.
