Macaron Day was created several years ago by Pierre Hermes out of Paris. The general premise was that you would come into the shop, receive a free macaron and in turn make a donation to a charity.
For Vancouver’s third annual Macaron Day, French Made Baking and Soirette will join worldwide celebration on Thursday, March 20. Their charity of choice will the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and Make a Wish Foundation.
