INTERNATIONAL MACARON DAY 2017

FOR THE LOVE OF SUMPTUOUS MACARONS
“MACARON DAY 2017”

Join us at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit on Monday 20 March from 3pm – 4pm as we celebrate “Macaron Day 2017”.

Started in France by Pierre Hermé, the man that Vogue called “the Picasso of Pastry”, Macaron Day is now celebrated around the world.

Pierre Hermé once said of these delightful little creations, “Macarons only weigh a few grams, but that’s enough to leave your senses quivering with pleasure. Their thin, crisp shell, slightly rounded shape, tempting colors and tender interiors draw devotees to devour them with their eyes and caress their smooth surfaces. Their flavors solicit the nose and, when one bites into that crisp shell, the ears tingle with pleasure and the palate is finally rewarded.”

To mark the occasion of “Macaron Day 2017” at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit, the talented Pastry Chef Joffrey Jacob from our Parisian-style café, Le Macaron, has created an array of special macarons. Guests can buy a macaron shell at THB 20 net each or ‘buy 5, get 1 free’ to stick on a 1.5 metre high elephant located in the hotel lobby. Proceeds from sales will be donated to the Elephant Foundation of Thailand. The charitable event is the perfect blend of Thai and French art and culture.

At Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit’s distinctly Parisian café, Le Macaron, guests can also enjoy our Macaron Special with 6 macarons of your choice for only THB 299++ or take home a box of 12 for only THB 599++ from 7 am – 11 pm only from 20 March – 20 April.

Guests are invited to join us at the “International Macaron Day 2017 Celebration” on Monday 20 March from 3pm – 4pm where they will enjoy our delightful pass-around macarons in many enticing flavors with free flow tea shakes.

Open daily from 7 am – 11 pm, Le Macaron serves morning coffees and smoothies to enjoy in air conditioned comfort or on the Parisian-style terrace. Temptations to accompany a menu of fine coffees and teas include exquisite French pâtisserie items, freshly baked breads, heavenly Viennoiserie, and our signature macarons, all complemented by friendly service from welcoming Sofitel Ambassadors. At Le Macaron, you can also rediscover the enduring tradition of Afternoon Tea or a decadent Champagne Afternoon Tea, served daily from 2pm – 5pm.

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Bangkok on Sukhumvit Road, Le Macaron is also ideal to pick up a light bite and a coffee to take away.
