Bakeries across the city come together to provide
free macarons to customers!
Today, on the first day of spring, twenty different pâtisseries across N. Y. C. will be participating in Macaron Day, N. Y. C., started here two years ago by famed pastry chef, François Payard.
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 Paris in association with the Relais Desserts.
