Macaron Day 2019 in Paris and Ile de France

Macaron Day is back on Tuesday March 20, 2019! For the 15th edition, Relais Desserts pâtissiers support children in Madagascar offering a 5-macaron box available on sale for charity!

Macaron Day, created by our dear friend Pierre Hermé, about 15 years ago, is back on Tuesday March 20, 2019.

For 14 years, clients could come in store and make a donation and were rewarded by the macaron of their choice! In 2019, it's a new format that comes for this wonderful operation highlighted by Relais Desserts association.

On March 20, 2019, the 100 Relais Desserts pastry chefs will sell a 5-macaron box (from their labs) including a chocolate and Madagascar vanillas macaron. 3 boxes have been designed, the 3 with the colors of the traditional fabrics from Madagascar!

This year, Macaron Day fights for the Zazakely Sambatra charity, a Madagascar charity meaning "Happy children".

Among the committed artisans in Paris and Île-de-France:

  • Maison Pierre Hermé Paris
  • Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (M.O.F.) : Jean-Paul Hévin, Laurent Duchêne and Arnaud Larher
  • Maison Lenôtre (New member of Relais Desserts)
  • Sadaharu Aoki
  • Frédéric Cassel (current President of Relais Desserts, Fontainebleau)
  • Nicolas Bernardé (M.O.F.), La Garenne-Colombes)
  • Michel Pottier (Pâtisserie Grandin, St Germain en Laye)

Let’s recall that last year, in 2017, €50,000 have been raised thanks to the gourmet solidarity of over 300 volunteers in stores and committed Relais Desserts pâtissiers. These donations have been shared between priority missions: healing while supporting research programs, curing, improving the life quality, informing and raising awareness in order to defeat the disease one day.

Don’t forget, on March 20, run to whole participating stores (over 100 stores in France) to do your gourmet good deed.
