Jour du Macaron

Today is Jour du Macaron (Macaron Day). The delightful French pastry is recognized every March 20 in Paris, New York, Toronto, and, for the first time this year, Vancouver.

If you’ve never enjoyed a macaron, I envy you, for there is nothing more wondrous than your first taste of this sweet meringue-based, ganoche-filled dessert. I discovered macarons for the first time two winters ago when I was in Paris. After my first bite, I moaned ― no lie ― and exclaimed, “Where have you been all my life?”
