Who is not a fan of macarons? Delicate, tender and sweet, macarons are a classic French pastry that seriously fulfill your tastebuds. For anybody who has yet to try these adorable cookies, I encourage you to take your first bite this week!
As you may have heard, Youth Week is a week long series of events dedicated to youth around the city in celebration of, well…. us! Calgary communities, agencies, and businesses come together to feature discounts and special events for the youth of YYC this week, from April 26 to May 3. In participation of this, Yann Houte Patisserie (329 23rd Ave SW) is giving out a complimentary macaron for youth this whole week! Simply have your student ID card with you and mention Youth Week to the staff.
Knowing this, I took a short stroll along Mission Street in search of the most delectable macarons for my lunch. Yann Houte Patisserie is a quaint yellow shop that is found just across the street from Famoso Pizzeria and Starbucks Coffee. This local bakery serves a mouth-watering assortments of pastries, cakes, and fresh breads. Their rainbow-colored selection of macarons is even harder to choose from, though. From Rose, to Passion Fruit and London Fog, there is a flavor for everyone’s particular preference.
