French Macaron Recipe in the USA - A Delectable Journey by Chef Sharon Shay
Founder, Chef Sharon Shay, was born in Marseille France, learned all the French cuisine from her family. At age of 19 she moved to Chicago and decided to pursue culinary and pastry fields. She graduated from Le Cordon Bleu and studied from Lenotre Paris to perfect her knowledge about macarons french cookie.
Chef Sharon Shay had a dream to share delectable Easy French Macarons with the world and to perfect her long-time family macarons recipe.
Originally from France, she was totally surprised to find out that the American take on the “macarons” was often simply sugar sandwich cookie shaped or, confused with the familiar coconut cookie called “macaroon”. She knew that with a little consumer education, and by treating the American palate to true French macarons with a few changes for their taste palate, Sharon knew that she could bring a taste and texture sensation to the American marketplace.
In 2015, Chef Sharon Shay began sharing her delectable macarons with the American consumer market and opened her first Le Petit Sucre Kiosk. Because of the big success around customers, she decided to help more businesses in selling her macarons and started producing from her own wholesale kitchen.
