Sandrine French Pastry & Chocolate, Kelowna

      

Since as far back as 1725 there have been recipes for making Macarons.  For anyone who has tried to create these light, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside desserts it isn't as easy as reading a recipe.  We are very fortunate in the Okanagan to have a master Macaron maker in local artisan pastry chef Sandrine Raffault.  Direct from France in 2004, this talented chef has been creating delicious Macaron every day and sharing them with avid consumers.

Join Sandrine this year to celebrate Macaron Day —or Jour du Macaron—on March 20th and support the KGH Foundation. The annual event was started by Parisian pastry chef Pierre Hermé in 1995. Over the years, Macaron Day has gained international recognition as a way to fundraise for local charities while enjoying delicious macarons.

Macarons are delicate light almond meringues with delectable fillings.  Personal favourites include Earl Grey and in season the Lavender and Raspberry flavours.

Any thoughts on the perfect wine pairing? Sparkling wine anyone? We've decided to pair these yummy treats with our NV Brut "Gold Label" sparkling.
