Macaron Masterclass by Arnaud Larher at Hotel Grande Bretagne, Athens

By Journey to Greece on May 22, 2019

The historic Hotel Grande Bretagne and the awarded Pastry Chef Arnaud Larher |Meilleur Ouvrier de France invited a number of significant local influencers and journalists to experience a unique Macaron-creating evening!

On Thursday, May 16th, the elegant Royal Room of the opulent hotel dressed up its pastel-colored spring attire and filled with the rich flavors of the 3 distinctive macaron tastes: Rose, Aegina Pistacchio and Lemon-Praline.

In this particular and spring-fresh atmosphere, the essence of the picturesque Paris of the 1950s revived while the live music of that time period accompanied the renowned Pastry Chef who invited his guests through a journey to the magical world of pastry!

Fun Fact: The first ever-written macaron recipe is being dated around the 17th century in Paris; two sisters, Marguerite and Marie-Elisabeth, started selling their handmade macarons during the French Revolution and has been since known in history as ‘Soeurs Macarons’.

Nowadays, March the 20th is the official Global Macaron Day!
