“We wanted Faubourg’s participation in Macaron Day to have a positive and tangible impact on the community,” said Franck Point, owner of Faubourg Paris. “This means more to us than simply spotlighting our most popular product. Rather than asking customers for donations, we’re giving them a deal, matching profits, and dedicating every cent to a very worthy cause.”
Started by Parisian pastry chef Pierre Hermé in 1995, Macaron Day has earned international recognition and become an annual event in many countries. 2015 marks the 4th year Vancouver bakeries and pastry shops are joining the international celebration of this traditional French delicacy while raising donations for various local charities.
Faubourg macarons are akin to those enjoyed during Hermé’s first festival in Paris. Lovingly crafted by hand to meet the highest French standards, Faubourg macarons are as artful as they are delicious. Faubourg’s current selection includes:
