Happy macaron-day!

Note: French version is on La cuisine de Babeth

Important: don't forget to check: Help beat sarcoma

I have a huge announcement to make: today, March 20th is macaron's day. Pierre Hermé, pastry chef royalty, decreeted so and he didn't have to persuade us. Macaron is super chic, trendy and even posh. Kirsten Dunst alias Marie-Antoinette was on a macaron-only diet in Sofia Coppola movie.
If you're in LA, check out Paulette macaron shop.
So at Pierre Hermé's boutique, today he offers us 3 macarons, and you can buy a special strawberry-chocolate one. All the profits will be given to the French orphan diseases association.
Check as well the beat sarcoma awareness post here.

You can try macarons at home, check here (sorry in French, I need more time to translate for you my macarons' recipe in English).

Any food that has its own holiday is fabulous! Wish I had thought to send my sister-in-law, who's living in Paris now, to get her macarons.

Lydia that's too bad your sister missed this year edition, but what is great with the macaron-day is that it's coming again next year, and the year after etc. :-)
