THE DAY OF THE MACARON - Mac Attack 5 extended
Every year on March 20, the world celebrates Macaron Day. According to the site Relais Desserts, Le Jour du Macaron is
“Une journée pendant laquelle chacun peut succomber avec délice à cette gourmandise ronde, légèrement bombée, au cœur moelleux et aux couleurs chatoyantes qu’est le macaron.”
In other words, it’s the day when each one of us can succumb to the delights and pleasure of this lightly domed delicacy, crispy on the outside with a tender, moist center in a dazzling array of colors! And, may I dare add, the amazing flavor sensation, the burst of exquisite gustatory delight, whether simple or exotic, sweet, savory or spicy, the macaron truly tickles the tastebuds in a way that no other treat does! In other words, on March 20 we can dare to express our passion for this oh-so French treat, this dainty confection, and give in to the pure enjoyment, the gustatory pleasure of the wonderful Macaron to our hearts’ delight.
And what better way for Mactweets to celebrate this most festive and perfect occasion that posting our March roundup on The Day of the Macaron? So we at Mactweets have decided to extend this month’s Mac Attack challenge until the 15th of March so that we can post the round up on March 20, Le Jour du Macaron.
So go forth and create, fellow MacPassionates, create something special for the occasion. Eat all the macarons you like on this special day, pass the plate of macarons around and share the pleasure and don’t forget to stop by Mactweets to see the roundup of a fabulous collection of gorgeous, inventive, titillating macarons.
