Macaron Day is back on Friday, March 20 and Burnaby’s Mon Paris Pâtisserie (4396 Beresford St.) is delighted to be participating in this meaningful annual charitable event. This year, Elena Krasnova will be donating 50% of proceeds from Mon Paris Pâtisserie's macaron sales on March 20 to Variety, the children’s charity.
In celebration of this delicate French cookie, Krasnova is introducing a new spring-inspired macaron, Sakura Strawberry, with distinct flavours of cherry blossom and strawberry.
Founded in France by Pierre Hermé in 2005 as a way to raise money for charity, Macaron Day has caught on in cities all over the world. Visit Mon Paris Pâtisserieon Macaron Day in honour of this delicious Parisienne treat and in support of children and families who are in need.
Born in Russia, Chef Krasnova moved to Vancouver in her early twenties where she attended university, collecting several degrees—including accounting— prior to pursuing a career in pastry. Realizing that number crunching wasn’t for her, she plunged into her true passion, moving to Paris to study at the famed Ferrandi l’Ecole de Gastronomie before working at France’s oldest and most storied patisserie, Dalloyau. Elena brought her international experience home to B.C. with the launch of Mon Paris Pâtisserie in January of 2017.
