It’s Macaron Day!

Hooray Macaron Day is here!  On this Tuesday, March 20th, various New York City pastry shops will be giving out macaron’s for free.  A holiday of sorts, Macaron Day was started in Paris by Pierre Herme and Relais Desserts.  A few years ago, they started a NYC branch of the event, which sadly does not include any Pierre Herme macarons, but there’s plenty of places to choose from!

My planned spots?
Bosie Tea Parlor
Dominique Ansel Bakery
La Maison du Chocolat

Also – this year they have a special where if you pick up a punch card from Francois Payard Bakery at 116 West Houston Street and go to 12 of the participating bakeries, you will get a 6 piece box from Francois Payard Bakery for free!  Challenge Accepted.

Side note:  Check out the glorious Macaron Day box at Pierre Herme!
