A Tasty Way to Celebrate French Macaron Day

We can’t blame you if National French Macaron Day wasn’t on your calendar, but it isn’t too late to commemorate the holiday.

Natasha’s Mulberry & Mott has a delicious way to celebrate today. For every two tasty French macarons purchased, your name will be entered in a raffle to win a basket of goodies for Passover or one of Natasha’s Easter baskets.

Feeling adventurous? Try your hand at making the notoriously challenging confection as part of a French macaron baking contest. Home cooks can fill out an entry form at the store and then drop off six macarons between 9 a.m. and noon on Saturday, April 5, to be judged based on their overall appearance, texture and taste. The winner receives a $50 gift card and a one-year subscription to Natasha’s 4 Seasons French Macaron Society.

And if you need a little help getting started, the store is offering a discount on macaron mixes and ingredients like almond flour and baking chocolate. Bon appétit!
