Like every 20th of March for the last 4 years it's macaron's day! Pierre Hermé and his fellow pastry chefs from Relais desserts group are celebrating spring with macarons. And the great news is that they are giving them away for free!
Where? In Paris, of course, but also all over France (addresses here), Belgium (addresses here), Switzerland (addresses here), the Netherlands (addresses here), Japan (addresses here) and in Luxembourg (addresses here)!

And Pierre Hermé himself will sign his macarons gilft boxes at Paris Publicis drugstore.

Jour du macaron is also a day to give back, pastry chefs made a special red macaron that you can buy for 1 euro. All the benefits will go to FMO (Orphan desease organisation) charity.

Oh c'est bien! I wish I were there...I received Chef Herme's Macaron cookbook as a gift for Christmas after a trip to Paris where we had great samples from Laduree! Can someone have a half dozen for me?
