Macaron Day NYC

In 2010, François Payard, chef and owner of François Chocolate Bar and François Payard Bakery in New York, organized the first annual Macaron Day in NYC. Macaron Day NYC is inspired by and coincides annually with the Jour du Macaron in Paris, created by la Maison Pierre Hermé in association with the Relais Desserts.

If you buy, a portion of sales will go to City Harvest.  For free macaron, just mention Macarons Day NYC!
