Macaron Day

Yesterday was one of my favorite holidays- Macaron Day! In my opinion, every day should be Macaron Day. New York City celebrates this glorious holiday by mapping out bakeries across the boroughs that give away free macarons in limited quantities between 10 am and 5 pm. At many locations, a portion of the day's macaron sales are donated to City Harvest, a NYC-based food rescue organization that feeds nearly two million New Yorkers each year.

My friend Jo and I raced out of work yesterday afternoon to hit up several of the bakeries on the Macaron Map in the West Village. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived they were all out of the free macarons. Of course, that didn't stop me from buying some! I tried several flavors at Mille-Feuille Bakery Cafe and loved them all. I had never been to that bakery before, so I considered it a successful trip even if we missed their free salted caramel treats!

I am counting down the days until I get to sample macarons across Paris this summer with my mom. I can't wait!

  1. That looks delicious and the bakery hopping is right up my alley. This may sound crazy, but I've never had a macaron! Maybe it is time I give them a try. :)

    1. Liz, you need to try a macaron! They are honestly one of my favorite treats. Bakery hoping for macarons inspired me to create some more food tours- I am hoping to plan a cupcake or ramen tour day soon with friends!

  2. What a fun outing! Too bad they were all out of the free macarons. At least it was a good excuse to run around the West Village eating sweet treats. I hope you enjoyed!
