Macaron Day NYC 2010 by Francois Payard


Join Francois Payard, chef and owner of Francois Chocolate Bar and other participating NYC bakeries this Saturday, March 20th for the first annual Macaron Day. Macaron Day NYC is inspired by and will coincide with the 5th annual Jour du Macaron in Paris, organized by Pierre Hermé. On this very special day, you will be able to receive one FREE MACARON when you tell the participating bakery that you are there for Macaron Day.

Once you try one of these "delicate round pastries with a crunchy outside and soft inside, made with ground almonds, sugar and egg whites", you will be sure to want to order more. Great news is that a portion of the day’s macaron sales will be donated to City Harvest. Indulge in macarons while contributing to the efforts of City Harvest.  Each week

City Harvest ( is the world's first food rescue organization, dedicated to feeding the city's hungry men, women, and children. , City Harvest helps over 260,000 hungry New Yorkers find their next meal. For more information or to donate directly to City Harvest please click here.
