Jour du Macaron

Well I made a fun discovery today… March 20th is Jour du Macaron or in other words the National Macaron Day!  And since the macaron is the inspiration for this blog to begin with, this is definitely a day worth recognizing.

Since their invention in the 1800s in France, these delectable cookies have been enjoyed worldwide by people of all ages.  Since their popularity has once again boomed, Macarons can now be found in numerous colors and flavor combinations, so there is a flavor for everyone.

Thus go and find your closest café or shop that sells macarons and enjoy one of the small tasty pastel treats today. I already did!
